Belted Kingfisher

Look who decided to use our nesting box as a perch!





















Chris spotted this female Belted Kingfisher this morning. The shot would have been better from the dining room, but the drapes were not open yet and she did not want to scare her off.

Hooded Mergansers and Common Mergansers


Wow! What a day here at Lake Nelson. There seems to be a merganser convention going on. Looks like the happy little couple came back and brought along some friends. Chris has spent the majority of the day on the dock or in the windows just watching their antics.




I love this shot even though the ones in the back are blurry because I call it "The Leader of the Pack."



Hooded Merganser Is she giving him the eye or what?










Common Merganser
I think this is the first time we've got a clear enough shot that you can see the eye on this guy.
