Belted Kingfisher -- photo courtesy of en.wikipedia.org
Sally Svenson sent in this report two days ago. Somehow it fell through the cracks. [And it's one of my favorite birds!]
As no one seems to have picked it up, I thought I would pass along for the benefit of those who keep "first of the year" records: My husband and I saw a belted kingfisher in the Loch at the northern end of Central Park at around four o'clock on Saturday afternoon, April 5--very vocal.
