Mrs. Kingfisher

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Lou Buscher, May 27, 2007.

  1. This was last summer in a small swamp by my home. I go down there and sit in the late after noon as the sun is heading in the right direction and all the critters are coming out for supper. Got lucky as I sat in my wagon along came Mrs. Kingfisher and sat right on a white birch stump about 125 feet from me.

    .....THE DEVIL BIRD...............
     
  11. Like Paul, I have never been close to a kingfisher. I am jealous.:mad:
     
  12. Thats to bad Allen as they are a sight to see when they make their dive for a fish. Look around water like lakes ,streams and rivers as they nest in the mud in holes at ground level and best seen if you can go around in a boat looking like a canoe or kayak. You have to be patience with them as they are skittish birds.
