The Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) has the typical short-tailed, large-headed kingfisher profile; it has blue upperparts, orange underparts and a long bill. The female is identified by red lipstick on her underbill. The kingfisher feeds mainly on fish, caught by diving, and has special visual adaptions to enable it to see prey under water. It lines its nest with fishbones. It has a very wide distribution over Eurasia and Africa.
