“Belted Kingfisher”


Description from Lois D: To celebrate its namesake, and, one of my favorite summer visitors, here is my mix of several Fall Pantones of 2012.
I love these feisty birds :)

    Thanks for the kind reviews; all of you ‘chickies’ are so uplifting.
    These birds remind me of mini-roadrunners with their spikey ‘crown’ feathers. They have a ‘big little bird’ attitude to boot. Always scolding somebody who dares to traverse his territory – which just happens to be everywhere and anywhere the little “king” happens to be :)
    We have a nesting pair along the brook on our property and the male defends “his” waterway with gusto :)
