Belted Kingfisher at the Pine Boat Launch.


In recent weeks its been so quiet at the Bash that other than an occasional quick drive through to see if anything might be around, I have spent very little time there. Speaking with Scott Baldinger the other evening he assured me it is actually quite birdy. Yesterday, Tuesday, I was looking for something to do in the afternoon. It was hot and humid, not the best time. I gave it a shot anyway. It was actually quite birdy. The best spot was the Pine Boat Launch. A couple of Belted Kingfishers and a family of Common Gallinule were all actively feeding. There was also quite a bit of passerine activity with things like Chickadees and White-breasted Nuthatches leading their chicks around. It was an interesting afternoon.
