The Woodland Kingfisher (Halcyon senegalensis) prefers the forest to the water, and nests in abandoned woodpecker or barbet tree holes. Contrary to their names, many kingfishers do not fish for their food – the Woodlands Kingfisher is part of the non-fishing group, preferring to hunt its prey from low tree branches away from water, swooping down to catch insects on the ground. The woodland kingfisher is widely distributed in tropical Africa south of the Sahara and from Pretoria northwards.
