From PBS’ Ireland’s Wild River, this is how the vibrantly-colored Kingfisher hunts for fish on the River Shannon: By diving.

Update: Their diving skills are not the only reason to be in awe of the kingfisher. Check out this fascinating video by @SheppeyWildlife: “I love the way the Kingfisher keeps his head still when he’s hunting.”

Our favorite bird videos include this frenetic feeding frenzy off the South African coast, releasing an eagle back into the wilds of Kansas, and Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s stunning Birds of Paradise project.
