Bird stories, African Dwarf Kingfisher

The birds associated with elephants are a species of hornbill (kohekohe), yellow- spotted barbet (bururu) and amasanginbo (unidentified small birds). It is said that, if men approach an elephant, these birds fly around the elephants, making a noise at the ears to inform the elephants of danger. The dwarf and pygmy kingfishers (manganlako) are also called the birds of the elephants, but these birds help the men instead, pointing to the location of the elephants with their conspicuous red bills.
