Abstract

Reported observations of Belted Kingfisher (Megaceryle alcyon)-raptor interactions have ranged from brief encounters where the kingfisher escaped the raptor and the hawk subsequently flew away to repeated chases (Johnson 1925, McCabe and McCabe 1928, Skinner 1928, Smith 1963). In some repetitive chases, kingfishers appeared to initiate the interaction (McCabe and McCabe 1928, Skinner 1928).
