Kōtare – The kingfisher is a small bird with a disproportionately large bill! Often seen perched high on power lines, these birds will swoop down and collect their prey in their bills. Kingfishers are found in Australia, New Caledonia and other Pacific islands, however the New Zealand subspecies is larger, has a broader bill, and more distinctive green and blue colours. Kōtare prey on fish, tadpoles, crabs and freshwater crayfish in aquatic areas, but also earthworms, cicadas, dragonflies, lizards, mice and small birds in open areas such as farmland. Kingfishers nest in cavities in trees, cliffs and banks which they dig themselves with their broad bills.
