Belted Kingfisher

This morning, Dec. 10, at about 7:30am while I was walking Frank down by Catoctin Creek, I saw a Belted Kingfisher. I haven't seen one of those before. I first noticed his call, a rapid chirring, like a cell phone ringer. It was a call that wasn't familiar in my yard. It was perched atop a telephone wire directly above the creek, making all kinds of noise, and when I walked up, it flew a broad circle and came back to roost on the wire. He's still down there as far as I know.
