Wild Bird Wednesday and Wednesday Around the World

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, January 31, 2018
Belted Kingfishers, Megaceryle alcyon, are common birds near North American rivers, streams and ponds. Look for them perched on tree branches or utility lines over the water, looking for fish near the surface. They supplement their fish diet with insects and berries.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. I enjoy seeing kingfishers. His feathers are blowing in the wind. Nice capture!

  2. To me a new type of kingfisher!
    Nice to see it.

  3. What a super photo of this bird. They are hard to find out in the open to photograph! Hugs!

  4. He looks a bit wind-blown! ;-)

  5. Such a fun bird to see, and your photo is great! I associate them with healthy bodies of water: I remember seeing one on the banks of the Milwaukee River several years ago, where they hadn't been seen for quite some time. Clean-up efforts have re-introduced them, along with some other species, to the area. In the past couple of years, the trend has gone backward a bit, but hopefully Milwaukee will figure it out. Cool birds!

  6. Oh I love that little guy. I have a couple of shots of one but they are very flighty. Good job


I enjoy your comments!

Thank you for visiting!
