White-throated Kingfisher – trapped

posted in: Kingfishers, Miscellaneous | 0

“We were out cycling and we came across this White-throated Kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis) trapped by barbed wire near our home. Two quick images and then we attempted to rescue it. Our close presence was sufficient to motivate the bird to break free and join its mate that was waiting nearby. They were nesting.
