good sighting. that Kingfgisher must be resident in your area.

We have a lot of Kingfishers, I am pretty sure some of them are winter resident.

thanks, Tom. I am wondering what the reason for so many Kingfishers on Random Island, bvut I seldom see one here in the Southwest Arm area. Random Islamd is only 1-1/2 nauticat miles north of here.

in the summer, they are quite numerous on the coast and in ponds. I know  rough locations for at least three nests. I wonder if the sticklebacks keep them fed here?
