Grey-headed Kingfisher

Halcyon leucocephala

This beautiful kingfisher with its pale grey head and chestnut belly and underwing coverts is a special summer migrant to southern Africa.

We first recorded this species in April 2010 while on honeymoon in Mkuze Falls Private Game Reserve in northern KwaZulu Natal.
