The above were taken back in late October.  The wintering belted kingfisher made an appearance in our channel and was hanging out on my neighbor’s dock. These were all taken over the course of the weekend. and all were through the bedroom window.

Then a few weeks later, I saw a different kingfisher on our dock.  The female kingfishers have a rust colored band across their chest so I knew it wasn’t the same one from late October. So, now we have both a male and female hanging around our channel this winter.  The female showed up on our dock late one day and was still there right before the sun went down. All taken through the bedroom window.
