Kingfisher catching flying insects

Like Carleton I have never a flycatcher eating fruit, but years ago I
watched as a female Belted Kingfisher repeatedly caught flying insects and
fed them to several hungry youngsters.  This was in the vicinity of McGuire
Nuclear Station on Lake Norman.  It seems that sometimes birds don't eat
what they're supposed to.
