Because the brightly colored birds known as kingfishers often fly in pairs, they are a symbol of marital bliss, especially in China. "Kingfisher contact" is the term given to one of the thirty positions used in Chinese lovemaking. Consequently, to see a kingfisher in your dreams is a sign of sexual satisfaction and enjoyment. In medieval times, people believed the kingfisher molted all its feathers. Consequently, it became a symbol of resurrection.
