I saw three rare birds today. The Seattle Seahawk …

… the newly crowned and ever gorgeous Miss Yardbird …

… and, finally, a Belted Kingfisher. It’s not a great shot, I know, but it is the very FIRST Belted Kingfisher I have ever seen. I was very excited to spot it. It was hanging out just down the line from the iconic Yardbird.

From what I read in my bird books, the Belted Kingfisher is quite common across the state, just not in my backyard.
