A GBBC Kingfisher


The last day of the 2008 GBBC was full of some interesting weather - balmy temperatures and on and off thunderstorms. The only new species I recorded in my casual birding of the day was a Belted Kingfisher in the wastewater pond across the parking lot. This is the 3rd winter in a row that we've had one here. I was taking out our old dishwasher and range to be freecycled and waiting for our new appliances to arrive when I heard its distinctive call. I grabbed the camera and got a few nice shots of him.

I've seen some of my best birds in parking lots. And so have others, while I was off in the woods birding.
