Ron Chrzas nicely captured the rugged beauty of a belted kingfisher, before it reacted to another kingfisher.
Kingfishers are one of my favorite birds to see. It’s something about their look. Their call can be as grating as a blue jay though.
Wild of the Week, a celebration of wild scenes and doings around Chicago outdoors, runs on the Sun-Times outdoors page on Sundays, as warranted.
As the fall and winter come, I also mix in Buck of the Week: Unplugged, the celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, on Sundays.
There are a multitude of ways to send nominations of WOTW or BOTW: Unplugged: on Facebook (Dale Bowman), Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
