Kingfisher by mydigitalmind Kingfisher by mydigitalmind
I have a family of Kingfishers who are constantly fishing and chattering around my creek. They are tough to get close to, but now and then they are more trusting.

Belted Kingfisher
Choconut Creek

These guys are neat to watch, especially when they hover in the air before diving into the water and coming up with a fish. Great capture! =D

Thank you! They are very fun to watch - especially when they capture a fish and beat it up! I never knew they did that until I actually SAW it!

Yes!! How rude of them to not be out. I suppose we could have chose better times to walk around there ;)
