A trip to the Old Matanuska Townsite revealed my first ever Kingfisher birds. Not only one, but a mating couple enjoying Spring courtship!
|Female Belted Kingfisher|
|Female Belted Kingfisher: she flew up on the wire and got the attention of a male that was down below - next photo.|
|Male Kingfisher: Note his pretty blue 'waistcoat'.|
|Courtship dance - they then flew off together down the river.|
