Belted Kingfisher

I was down at croton poitn park the other day. I took a walk down to the beach. There was a good amount of eagles fishing down on the river. We were watching two fight for a fish. Out of the corner of my eye, i saw a smaller bird start zooming towards me. I thought it was a falcon it was going so fast. It turned out to be a belted Kingfisher. It never got too close, but good enough for a picture. It would have been cool to see his crown up. Hopefully in the summer time there will be more, and i will get better uppurtunites for a shot!
