THE PIED KINGFISHER.(wikipedia)
It has evolved two unique strategies, shared by no other kingfishers. The Pied Kingfisher can hunt in both salt and freshwater. It can also deal with prey without returning to a perch, and can, for example, catch a second fish, or eat small prey in flight. These adaptations mean that this kingfisher can hunt over the sea or in estuaries that lack the perches required by other kingfishers.The Pied Kingfisher is estimated to be the world's third most common kingfisher, and is a noisy bird.
