Fishing

Yesterday, this female Belted Kingfisher swooped down in Lake Tamarack and came back up with a fish in her mouth.  She headed to the top of a wood duck box and sat there for a few minutes before flying off again (with the fish still in her mouth).  The belted kingfisher is one of the few species of birds where the female is more colorful than the male.  Click here for more information.

These Rules are for the Birds

The following two photos were taken four days apart, in two different areas around Lake Tamarack. Who doesn’t like a little irony?
