Ringed Kingfisher

Ringed Kingfisher

Birdman
Common in the American tropics, the Ringed Kingifisher was considered rare north of Mexico until the 1960's. It is now found commonly along the lower Rio Grande, and locally elswhere in southern Texas. Larger than our familiar Belted Kingfisher, the Ring hunts from higher perches and takes bigger fish. When going from place to place it flies high, often following the river, giving a measured "tchack...tchack" call in flight #animal #bird #birdman #feather #grande #kingfisher #lower #ring #rio #river #south #texas #valley #water #wing
