Saturday surprise_Belted Kingfisher
3

Saturday I went to look for a duck (cinnamon teal) that I can't seem to locate - whenever I get to the place it is reported to be, not to be found.
As it often turns out, nature will offer up something else that is special. It was a beautiful Belted Kingfisher - for this species the female is the more colorful one - with her chestnut colored belly band, and blue-grey coloring, dagger bill she stands right out.
I've never been able to observe one so close and for such a long time, about 15 minutes. At one point a guy stopped, shouted out did I needed help - still didn't fly off. She was determined to catch her fish - in the end she was successful.

Hope you enjoy her, and thanks for looking -
