If you've watched Kingfishers, if the fish is wriggling too much to swallow, they'll bash it on a limb to subdue it before swallowing......this was bashing #2 or #3...

Thanks Jeff. These guys will be here for the whole season, it's a good fishing spot for them.

You're becoming a kingfisher master, Ian. Great shots. I think they thwap the fish most that have bony fins or something like a bullhead that has spines. I've seen them devour shiner minnows with n'ary a thwap.

Thanks very much for the comments folks, it's fun being able to get some good shots of such a persnickety subject.
