Belted Kingfisher

Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, British Columbia

A Belted Kingfisher ( Ceryle alcyon ) is a fish-eating bird that is usually found in sheltered waters. This Belted Kingfisher is an adult male because it has a shaggy crest and doesn't have the chestnut-brown belly band that is seen on the female. I like this photo because of the branch, moss and nice green background.
