Bird of the Day:Belted Kingfisher
Spotted by my mom on the neighbor's boat dock.
We keep the binoculars on the end table these days.
The funk I was in has, coincidentally, flown off.
photo credit: Wikipedia Having never seen a Belted Kingfisher before, I couldn't get my camera because I was too busy looking through the binoculars making my inventory, i.e. long straight beak, russet feathers on breast, white band around neck, short tail, really short legs, plump body....
