Kingfishers of Kijongo Bay and Surrounds

Posted by Karl on Wed February 2, 2022 in Kijongo Bay Bird Life.

With Kijongo Bay Beach Resort being next to two bodies of water, namely the Indian Ocean and the Msangazi River and mangrove forest, we are in a very favourable position for seeing kingfishers. Not to forget Saadani National Park, which is close by and also being a great area to spot kingfishers.

As a species, kingfishers are very extensive, however with around ½ of all kingfishers not fishing or even eating fish, perhaps the name kingfisher is a misnomer.

Half of the kingfishers are insectivores and live almost entirely on insects and are not dependent on water. This half is found in bush, woodlands and forest areas and are commonly called tree kingfishers.
