Hallo Betty,
ein sehr hübscher Besucher ist Dein Eisvogel.
Hier bei uns sehe ich ihn sehr selten.

Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland

I had never thought of kingfisher as unsociable, but you are right! Put a never come near our house.

It is great to see this visitor to your garden.

My visitors are usually chipmunks eating my tomatoes. I do have a thistle attracting finches though.

For us, the Kingfisher is called "Eisvogel."
I love and admire these rare birds very much!

Hello,
that's a great picture of the Kingfisher! I've never seen one in the wild before and I am fascinated!
I am now also taking part in MCoW, I like it very much! I brought some photos from my current holiday resort, it is my "Corner of the World" at the moment.
Best regards, Rieke

Suzana said...

What a cute visitor! Thank you for sharing the photo with us!
Happy WW and all the best!

Amy said...

Lucky! I've only seen them once so far here.

Lydia C. Lee said...

I don't think I've seen a Kingfisher. And I thought they liked water. Did I just make that up or do you have a stream or something nearby?

I am green with photographers envy of your Kingfisher. I have the worst picture I’ve ever blogged in my post today, because I was so proud to finally get a picture of one (even a bad one). I do actually appreciate yours showing what a good one looks like! (Ours that I see aren’t as colorful and pretty as yours in the first place, but they are better than my picture shows.)

What a beautiful bird!

That's a very pretty bird. Let's hope you'll be friends, soon. :)
Have a lovely week, Betty.

And thank you for hosting.

I would be delighted to have a Kingfisher visit my garden!

Happy Weds, Betty!

I used to like to see kingfisher but these days, I prefer them to keep their distance. I suspect they and other birds have been fishing off my fish pond. My guppies are dwindling in number.

italiafinlandia said...

Lovely!
I have seen it maybe twice in my life.

Natasha said...

One handsome guy this! :)

Amy Johnson said...

You must have water in your garden if your attacking these birds. I live near marshy areas, so I see them above the roads while driving. But I've never seen one in my garden.

Melbourne Australia Photos said...

They're lovely looking birds, Betty!

I would be jumping through hoops (at great personal risk) if a kingfisher visited my backyard!

kiwikid said...

Wonderful photo, they are shy birds aren't they.

Linda said...

I've seen them near rivers but they don't like posing, do they!

bill burke said...

It's a beauty and you are lucky to have it as a visitor. I have never seen one in person. :(
Have a wonderful day and thanks for hosting.

Traveler In Me said...

Lovely. It is the Sacred Kingfisher species. Apparently the holy bird for Polynesians, who believed the bird had control over the waves. I love these fun facts related to birds :)

A Quiet Corner said...

YOU are so lucky to have such a visitor, Betty!! Here, I am happy to see butterflies and hummingbirds...:)jp

What beautiful colors that bird has. So well suited. Nature is the greatest artist!

Have a great day, dear Betty!
