Black-capped Kingfisher

Birds of Goa.

The Black-capped Kingfisher is not as common as the other species of the Kingfisher. These birds are skittish and do not permit a close approach. To fill most of the frame would have taken at least 800 mm but I had a maximum reach of 400 mm. Nevertheless the light was good and the bird appositely positioned.

    Hi Rajan,
    I love all your pics. I would like to know some more about birds of Goa. I have a brown bird (fairly large) that nests in the trees near my home in Porvorim. I don’t know what bird it is. It is a lovely brown, almost bronze. I would appreciate it if you would identify it for me. Thank youReplyCancel
