A while back, I was very excited to have seen a Belted Kingfisher, a lifer for me, quickly fly by me. The place was Bay View Park. This year I saw it in the same place and before I had the camera up and ready, it left. Yesterday, as I stood at the same place looking at the Bay and it alighted and stayed for a couple minutes. The Kingfisher was far away, but this is photo documentation.
I also saw a Woodpecker I never saw before. That was the lifer, and I will tell you more about it in my next post. I typed all the info, and it disappeared. I hit the undo and it undidn’t. I am running so late, but wanted to share this with y’all, people who appreciate my excitement and have the same kind of experiences. -SLB
