Belted Kingfishers near Regina, Saskatchewan

I saw this Belted Kingfisher in early spring.

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.
