Long live the Queen!

Even though it's a blurry photo, I'm posting it anyway since it shows a female Kingfisher.  Females sport the rusty brown bands of color on their chests whereas males' chests do not - one of the rare times a female gets more color than a male.  Go, Queenfisher!  :)

How beautiful she is. Are they native to your area or just passing through right now?

Hi Nancy! They're natives here. They play along the pond all year, scolding and diving and generally raising a fuss. :)

Took me a minute but I get it. Queen- Ha- Funny your mind just reads what you want to read(or what you think it should be) then you have to re-read it because your mind catches up and notices you actually didn't read what you thought. Maybe this is too much information on how my mind works. Think?
