One Year Ago – Belted Kingfisher

Belted Kingfisher

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the bird that is at the top of my ‘nemesis’ list.  My nemesis list consists of birds I frequently see but rarely can get a good photograph.  The belted kingfisher is an incredibly shy and noisy bird that has been a thorn in my side for years now.  Once I hear his song, I am immediately drawn to it to try and get the shot I’ve been dying for.

On April 5th of last year, I managed to get this photo at around 5pm on a cloudy day at Vassar Farm.  After a year of trying and dozens of sightings, this was the best that I could get.  From then to now has not been much better in capturing this unique looking bird either.  It feels like my day with never come for this one…
