Belted Kingfisher

After waking up to the traditional Christmas morning sounds of rapid-fire shotgun blasts from duck hunters on the cove, I noticed this bird in a tree across the river:



It was about 100 yards away, so unfortunately the picture quality is pretty bad. I'm pretty sure it's a kingfisher.

The warbler pic was better quality but this bird is definitely more exotic. For birders the latter seems to be the thing. I am belted as I write this. Merry Christmas!
