What a nice find Julie !!

Is it a rare bird, or just not normally in that area [I also happened to take my first pic of a kingfisher today - brownhooded - common in our area]

Very nice shot alady! And what a beautiful bird. We have the Belted Kingfisher in our area, but they are very skittish. I've never been close enough for a photo. Good job, nice and sharp too. Woody

Oh boy is he something else. All the colors look right and its nice and sharp. I don't think I have ever seen a Kingfisher of any kind before. Sure would like to though.

Cheers

Our Belted Kingfisher, is a tease, more than shy. A Wood Duck, if it see's a human - is history. A Kindfisher will just move out of range, keeping up a continious chater that sounds much like "naaaaahahahahahahaha"

Last summer, after years of trying I finally got some good shots.

This is a definite keeper, Julie. Lovely looking bird and one of my favorite types (our belted here are similar except for color. The bill size on yours seems larger as well). If yours over there are as skiddish as they are here then this isn't a great capture, it is a significantly wonderful one. You must have been sitting in a blind :G

They are skittish but this guy knew i was there and watched me until I got a little closer and then took off. Ive seen kookaburras and a smaller brown kingfisher but never one of these pretty ones around here.

Thanks for the comments everyone
