The male half of the locally nesting Belted Kingfisher pair has returned to the Wetlands from wherever it was that he spent the last six or seven months. I think he’s back a bit early this year. I don’t remember seeing him until sometime in March in the past.
I’ve already seen the male chasing about the Wetlands with a fish dangling from his bill trying to impress, or entice, our female. Love is in the air!
