They Don’t Call Me King For Nothing

Belted Kingfisher

What is a baby’s motto?

If at first you don’t succeed cry cry again!

Interesting Fact: The breeding distribution of the Belted Kingfisher is limited in some areas by the availability of suitable nesting sites. Human activity, such as road building and digging gravel pits, has created banks where kingfishers can nest and allowed the expansion of the breeding range. ( )


  1. Such a beautiful bird! Do you know if they frequent the Southeast? I would love to see one! jan

    • They are quite stunning birds and amazing fisher. To answer your question they are common to your are they should be there all year around. But they are very easily scared by the sight of human. A lot of time they hide, but you can tell they are there by the call that they make. It’s quite unique. Thank you very much for stopping by and Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. I came to thank you for the like. Alcedo atthis is my spirit animal, if I absolutely have to claim one.

  3. Nice photo! Would love to see one of these in person, but your photograph is a great alternative. And the joke–what can I say; they always bring a smile!

    • I am really glad to see that they do put a smile on your face. You will come across one soon or later. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
