    Tian-tsui ("kingfisher art") was so popular among Chinese crafters that the trade in kingfisher feathers contributed to the wealth of the Khmer Empire, even helping fund the construction of Angkor Wat.

    I apologise if this ha already been said, but at 1:25 you state that the Pied Kingfisher is the largest hovering bird in the world. This is not true. A Pied Kingfisher is 25-27cm long, whereas a Kestrel is 31-37cm long, and hovers to spot it's prey on land. Otherwise quite entertaining.
