Belted Kingfisher Released

A male Belted Kingfisher was released after it was old enough and it's health had improved.  His sibling died due too many red ant bites.  Everytime it was feeding time it would trill, but when put out in the flight cage he didn't want anything to do with humans.

He was released right back where he came from in Virgina Beach.  Kingfishers nest in the banks among the reeds and hunt by hovering or perching on a branch over- looking the water.  Their habitat is slowly being distroyed.  Help preserve their habitat.
