After a slow start, my friend Genia and I settled in to the pier at the Hwy 50 Boat Launch to watch some herons on the shore. We were surprised and delighted when a Belted Kingfisher landed on a railing sticking out of the water right in front of us. She entertained us by singing and carrying on for a few minutes and sat there for quite a while before flying off. What a little twerp!

|Great blue heron, I was hoping for a wood stork.|
