The Elusive Belted Kingfisher...


This morning I took two families out to Spanish Fork Canyon. We were on a mission to discover the Belted Kingfisher.

Prior to our search, we found the Red Ledges. An area of red cliffs. To think we have our own little arches here in Utah county.

We walked along the creek for one and a half hours in hopes of seeing the neo-tropical Kingfisher, who usually resides in branches along, or over hanging the creek.

We did see a lot of birds. Such as swallowtails, gold finches, yellow warblers, and the ever present robin.

But at last, no belted kingfisher. To bad, so sad.

Well, it really was not that sad. We all played in the creek for a time and then picniced.
