Belted Kingfisher are crested, stocky, and large-headed birds. They have blue-grayish bodies, a white “collar”, and males have a blue band across their chest, while the females have blue and rust colors across theirs. Belted Kingfishers are found throughout North and Central America, and the tip of South America. They eat fish, which they will plunge into the water to get. They will also eats insects, berries, small mammals, and small amphibians. I found this female perched northern Arizona.

I have a special fondness for these birds… every year a couple nest down here by the brook and I love that razor sharp cry of theirs… great picture Tracy.
