Watercolour Wednesday – The Belted Kingfisher – Bird # 43 of 100.

I find these birds so striking with their funky feather crowns. They have superior fish-catching skills, making them the Fisher Kings!

According to AllAboutBirds.org, this is a female. “Females are blue-gray with a chestnut belly-band and flanks.” The males don’t have the colourful belly-band, which I find unusual, since most male birds are more colorful than their female counterparts.
