Watching for Breakfast

It's been like homecoming week on the West Bay Walkway this last few days. Shoreline residents I haven't seen all summer are suddenly reappearing in their old haunts. Above is a Belted Kingfisher (Megaceryle alcyon) perched high above Sailor's Cove in the rigging of a sailboat.

He's cute with his spiky 'do. I love how the sky looks in this picture too.

These guys have always struck me as quite unique, in appearance and behaviour. They always seem to work/travel alone and zip around steadily between patient perchs.

One of my favourite birds - and very difficult to get a picture of!
