It is the first one I've seen in a couple of years and first time I've seen one in my yard. He was after a bug and flew by me on the lawn mower chasing it and crashed into my lilac bushes when he caught it. He was determined to catch that one.

107 - Belted Kingfisher  (June 5th, Wapsipinican Park). 


This guy makes a showing for a couple weeks then disappears.  My son first saw him 4 or 5 years ago.  We tend to catch him in the same area of the park each year for a very short time.
