Belted Kingfishers

An Osprey took off with a catfish. A belted kingfisher followed the Osprey halfway before turning back. I missed making a good photo with the Osprey and its catch but I was able to locate the kingfishers later:

Here’s the failed attempt at capturing the Osprey:

Belted Kingfisher!

About two weeks back, when I was new to the area I live in, I took a wrong bus and got off at a wrong stop. I had to walk quite a bit to get another bus. On the way I had to walk over a bridge and I saw a bird fly quickly away that I thought was a Belted Kingfisher. Just a glimpse.

So today with my bicycle I went Kingfisher fishing to the same area. I don’t know if it was the same one, but I found one! First time, and always been dreaming about thisĀ one since seeing pictures online.
