A fisherman of a different feather
If it spots a meal the kingfisher dives with a big splash and emerges with its prey crosswise in its bill. It usually then flies away to its nest which it makes by carving round holes in the sides of clay banks along the lakeshore.
Sometimes when you are fishing you unintentionally "drive" these beautiful birds from cove to cove ahead of you as you troll or cast. They usually fly away with a scolding chatter as if they are giving you a piece of their mind for interrupting their work. Eventually, they loop back around you and go back to where they began.
