A common waterside resident throughout North America, the Belted Kingfisher is often seen hovering before it plunges headfirst into water to catch a fish. It frequently announces its presence by its loud rattling cry.
Look for Kingfishers in saltwater and freshwater habitats, from open coasts, marshes,riverbanks, and lakes
