Pied Kingfisher

I was sitting and watching this Pied kingfisher, perched on a wire, passing across a stream. The pied kingfisher was suppose to hover on top of the prey and hunt for it, not perch upon a wire. Seemed like humans had made its life a wee bit easy. 

 It made a number of hunting sorties from this perched position, and returned empty beaked !

It was probably at the 5th of 6th attempt that it successfully emerged with its catch. Congrats!
