Coraciiformes: A Colorful World of Birds From the vibrant Green bee-eater pair perched on a branch, facing opposite directions, to the majestic Common Kingfisher resting in Dorset, UK, November - Coraciiformes never fail to captivate us with their beauty and unique behaviors. In the UK, a Common kingfisher gracefully perches on a No Fishing sign, reminding us of its presence and resilience. Meanwhile, in New Zealand, both young and adult members of the species showcase their striking plumage as they dive into crystal-clear waters. Traveling across continents to Australia, we encounter the iconic laughing kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae), whose distinctive call echoes through the vast landscapes. Its relative from Europe is none other than the Alcedo athhis or common kingfisher – an emblematic bird known for its stunning blue feathers contrasting against fiery orange hues. The Little bee-eaters gather side by side on branches along Allahein River in The Gambia during early mornings. Their synchronized presence creates a mesmerizing sight that showcases nature's harmony. On another branch nearby sits a female Pied kingfisher (Ceryle rudis), exuding elegance as she surveys her surroundings. Hungary becomes home to two remarkable Coraciiformes species: European roller (Coracias garrulus) takes flight with grace and agility while Bee-eater male (Merops apiaster) offers a wasp as a nuptial gift – showcasing courtship rituals that are both fascinating and heartwarming. Finally, our journey ends in Sabah, Malaysia where we find ourselves enchanted by the Blue-eared kingfisher (Alcedo meninting). Its iridescent blue feathers shimmer under sunlight like precious gems adorning this avian jewel. Coraciiformes truly paint our world with vivid colors and enchantment wherever they roam.
