I was impressed by its colours and perky, aggressively cartoon-like head feathers and long narrow bill...
And I thought, 'Surely I'll see more of these birds on the prairie, as spring moves to summer in Saskatchewan.'
But I did not.
And so, to prove to myself that I saw a Belted Kingfisher near my home, here is my little bird — in a very tiny crop — photographed from a great distance away at the Condie Nature Refuge, north of Regina, Saskatchewan.
