Just Another Belted Kingfisher

I haven’t birded Titlow Park for quite awhile, but, with the constant rain we were looking for a place nearby where we could get in a short walk with Leslie’s friend.  As it turned out, perhaps we should visit there more often.  

My favorite sequence of the day was a series of shots of this Belted Kingfisher sitting on a branch overlooking the pond, 

diving (way too fast to get a shot) and landing on a fallen tree on the opposite side of the pond to eat his catch, 

before returning to the original branch to complain about how we were encroaching on his fishing spot.

  1. Fabulous shots! We have them at our pond in the Adirondacks from time to time – they come in, empty out our pond of bite-sized fish, and move on! I love watching them.
