This Pied Kingfisher male was feeding another Pied Kingfisher.

He is either the father or a male helper feeding either a chick or one of the breeding birds. These ‘helpers’ are males whose breeding attempts have failed.

There testosterone level is reduced and they help the species along by providing ‘catering services’!
