Crested kingfishers inhabit mountains where you can find small and large rivers because they hunt fish and crayfish to eat.

They build their nests both on hills and branches of trees. These birds have a special place to incubate their eggs. They dig a barrow in a bank and lay eggs. This task is done by both males and females.

After laying several eggs, females incubate them.
