Belted Kingfisher - Turner's Falls, Franklin Co., MA. November 5th, 2011.
In the afternoon, I took Matan for a ride down to the bike path at the Turner's Falls power canal. It felt good to finally get a shot of this lingering Belted Kingfisher, present for a while but a little camera shy. Scott Surner, Ian Davies and Jacob Drucker were there hoping to get a little more detail on the possible Brewer's Blackbird that I saw on Nov 2nd, but apparently didn't meet with success, nor did they see any Rusty Blackbirds.
Returning home, Matan and I were greeted by the Great Horned Owl calling close to the house at dusk.
