Belted Kingfisher

Belted Kingfisher
 The belted kingfisher is a bird that can be found through out North America at different times. During the summer belted kingfishers nest on breading territories in Canada and the northern United States. They nest in burrows which the dig in dirt banks. Most the times these are river or stream banks but areas like roadside ditches and gravel pits have allowed them to expand their breeding range. The burrow is usually 3 to 6 feet long and slopes up to help keep water out. The belted kingfisher spends it winters in the southern coastal areas of the United States, Mexico, and Central America but they are often seen in the central portion of the United States during migration.

Is interesting to know whether this belted kingfisher and our white-throated talk the same language.

Very nice capturing of this pretty bird! Ours here look a bit different. But I think both are very camera shy.

Nicely done!

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my
iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a
youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues
with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
up losing several weeks of hard work due to no
data backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which
I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!
