Belted Kingfisher - An All Season Favorite
It's not easy to get near this species because they are so quick to get away from people. I lucked upon this one on Pond Road in Kelligrews. It was sitting and watching an Osprey feed. It was so intent that I wondered if it were studying the feeding techniques of the Osprey.
No mater where you go or what you might be looking for while birding you can almost always count on some unexpected show of Nature and the Belted Kingfisher is often the species to provide this.
