The ringed kingfisher (Megaceryle
torquata) is a large, conspicuous
and noisy kingfisher, commonly found
along the lower Rio Grande valley in
southeasternmost Texas in the United
States through Central America to
Tierra del Fuego in South America.
It is often seen perched prominently
on trees, posts, or other suitable
"watchpoints" close to water before
plunging in head first after its
fish prey. They also eat insects and
