Bad Hair Day

Here is a Belted Kingfisher. He sort of looks like he might be having a bad hair day. No?

This guy depends on open water so it can dive after fish and other aquatic animals. It lives a solitary life except during breeding season when a pair digs a tunnel for the nest into the bank of a creek or pond. You will hear and remember its distinctive, loud, “rattle” cry year round. The female has the extra, reddish brown colored “belt” and sides. =]:)
