Belted Kingfisher

I was out today scouring the local farmland for corn (maize) stubbles and geese. Didn't have much luck with geese, just a few American Pipits and 3 Horned Larks. I was lucky to come across this female Belted Kingfisher though. Often kingfishers are flighty and difficult to approach. This bird was close enough to the road for me to get a few snaps. It even came and landed on the rail of the bridge at one point.

Shame about that tangled fishing line in the tree!
