They take fish, crabs and prawns, to lizards, small snakes, insects, tadpoles and earthworms. Those hunting along the coast eat mainly small crabs and crustacea, and some fish, mostly mudskippers.

They whack larger prey against the perch. They have also been seen hammering shells against stones to get at the mollusc or hermit crab. They may even snatch prey caught by others (one was seen snatching a prawn caught by a Little Heron).

Collared Kingfishers are particularly aggressive. Not only towards their own kind, but also towards other Kingfisher species. This could be another reason for the widespread presence. The decline in the White-throated Kingfishers might also be due to the spread of the Collared.

They are also aggressive towards other birds such as mynas; vigorously driving off these birds from their feeding grounds, particularly during breeding season. They may even drive off landbound creatures.

a pair of collared kingfishersBreeding: Collared Kingfishers breed in Singapore. They perform courtship flights and the male may offer the female titbits. Both parents make the nest. They prefer to dig out a nest in dead trees or palms and sometimes take over woodpecker holes. Some even burrow into the active nests of ants and termite high in the trees. Or burrow among the roots of a fern growing in a tree. Only occasionally do they dig out tunnel nests in earth banks or a mud lobster mound. Good nest sites are often reused at the next breeding season. 2-4, usually 3, white eggs are laid. In a good season, two broods may be raised.

Dacelo gaudichaud, Rufous-bellied Kookaburra, Kukabura Perut-merah

The Dacelo gaudichaud, Rufous-bellied Kookaburra,  Kukabura Perut-merahRufous-bellied Kookaburra (Dacelo gaudichaud) is a species of kookaburra which is widely distributed through the forests of lowland New Guinea. It has also been recorded on Saibai Island, Queensland, Australia.

This kookaburra is unusual in that it occupies dense rainforests (as opposed to the open country preferred by other kookaburras) and does not live in family groups but in pairs. It is a white-billed bird with a black cap, blue-tinged wings, and a pale rufous belly and tail feathers.

The scientific name commemorates the French botanist Charles Gaudichaud-Beaupr?/td>
