The Male Kingfisher feeds his mate as a show of bonding.

For most of the time I was shooting the kingies, the female was sat on eggs in the nest burrow, and would only come out occasionally. The male would take fish back to the nest for his mate.
Thanks again to Cal for the UA on yesterday's image.
