While visiting our local wetlands the other day, my daughter and me got to see a Belted Kingfisher!

We were both surprised and amazed to see more than just ducks and tadpoles. There were actually three of these little blue “mohawk” birds chasing each other around a fixed track, almost like they were racing. They kept repeating the chase over and over, I do wish my camera battery had lasted long enough to get footage of this.

So here is the brief clip I got of one of the birds resting on a branch between laps.

Here is the swamp, I have more videos to post later… ducks and other more “common” Oregon wildlife.
