Wetlands Birding

Fred and I went birding at a local wetlands refuge. We saw some nice birds, mostly the usual suspects, but I was pleased that this kingfisher posed long enough to get some decent digiscoped shots. I've never gotten any good kingfisher shots. It's good but not great; he was at the far limits of my scope and I was having difficulty telling if it was in focus. Otherwise, we saw red-winged blackbirds, song sparrows, several great blue heron, I think a wood thrush, some turkey vultures and a hawk.
