Underwater, the kingfisher
tries to grab the fish with it's beak. If successful, it needs to
exert considerable pressure to keep hold of the slippery, wriggling
victim. The kingfisher's natural buoyancy carries it back to the
surface. It must then time its wing beat so that a powerful downstroke
can propel it out of the water and into the air.
