Walking through the Earth Sanctuary on the island with my bird friends, we spotted a belted kingfisher flying low over the middle pond.  Sometimes it splashed the water dipped its head into the shallow water the flew off returning for some more splashing. The pond is populated with bull frogs and the water level is very low due to the hot dry weather so we think the kingfisher was able to easily snatch a frog from the pond.

  1. It was exciting to see the active kingfisher and it was the highlight of our time spent at the pond. We had plenty of time to sight it with our binoc’s. Thank you for visiting.

  2. Your image appeared on my screen, and a smile popped up only face. Probably similar to your smile when you saw this moment. . . . and to another smile when you completed this sweet drawing.
