You can see them here in Austin. You just need to know where to look.

Steph, that is a beautiful bird. Where are they? Gulf coast?

Green Kingfisher

I've seen these birding - they are lovely birds.

I love the Kingfishers Joan! Thank you!

Thanks for the gallery link.

Kaza, New African Protected Area Gallery

Kingfishers 

A lovely series of photos with ambition to attract tourist trade. Wouldn't that be great to develop tourism instead of poaching?!

Those animated GIFs are great! And like booklover said hysterical!

Thanks for the laughs.

Appreciate you all here today.

Jessica welcome to the group!

Thank you Tony - love the penguin story and the information you gave us.

I have the movie "March of the Penguins". Anyone here see it?

It's great!

Melinda, love penguins. Did you know penguins are tracked from space? The rate of death/injury when they are tagged with a radio tracking device is too high, so some scientist figured out a way to track them through their splatt (spoor/droppings/feces) by satellite. Quite interesting work.
