The Belted Kingfisher is common and widespread in North America, and one of the only kingfishers found in most areas north of Mexico. Their wild call is often the first thing noticed as they fly over rivers and lakes. You will see them hovering a few feet above the water's surface before they dive head first catching small fish with their bill. Kingfishers will also hunt frogs, tadpoles, crayfish and insects. Females have one blue and one chestnut band across their white chest, while males only have a blue band.
