Belted Kingfisher

 North American kingfishers are fish-eating birds found on sheltered water. They hover over open water before plunge-diving headfirst to capture small fish.
 When I drive across Alligator Alley, I often see many kingfishers on the telephone wires on my drive.
Dark blue-gray above and mostly white collar below, shaggy crest and large bill.


  1. The kingfishers are amazing birds, great shots of them !!

  2. Wow, lovely photos of this stunning bird. I just love kingfishers

  7. Hello Rachelle,
    I've double checked it and working properly. It's a Hungarian website especially for Kingfishers. Try to copy this link and paste into your explorer's line directly.


    Hope it can help you. Please advise.

  11. Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

    I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many options out
    there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks!

  12. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  13. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have
    any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    several weeks of hard work due to no back up. Do you
    have any methods to stop hackers?
