"The pied kingfisher (Ceryle rudis), a highly adapted bird who feeds almost exclusively on fish, some crustaceans and aquatic insects, also has a bony plate joined to the prefrontal bone of the skull, which provides a sliding screen in front of the eye for when it plunges into the water." (Fowler and Miller 2003:254)
