Beyond the BackyardCircle B Bar Reserve

Waiting

I was leaving the Circle B Bar Reserve on Saturday morning when I noticed this Belted Kingfisher perched on a branch near the Heron Hideout trail.  I was surprised that he was perched so close – usually they stay farther away.  He let me position myself at a good sun angle, then gave me a great head position before flying off to continue his morning fishing routine.  Isn’t it great when birds cooperate with you? :)
