The Travels of Tug 44


Belted Kingfisher






The Belted Kingfisher is a small energetic bird, generally living on fish which it catches by diving right into the water. This one is a male, the female has an additional "band" of brown on her lower chest. Kingfishers are one of very few birds where the female is more decorated than the male. They live in burrows dug into the riverbank above the water. This photo was taken in light snow.

I'm hoping for more and better photos soon. :)   high-res
