A Pair of Giants

Giant Kingfisher
A Pair of Giant Kingfishers captured by Louise Kirsten at Rietvlei Nature Reserve.

It’s always great to see a Giant Kingfisher but even better when you see two together hunting! At Rietvlei, one can spot them near the bridges (Otter Bridge and Vlei Bridge). They like to hunt for freshwater crab here. They are wonderful birds and always fun to watch. If you don’t see them near the water then make sure you look up into the branches of the willows nearby as they often perch there too.
