Despite being such a charismatic bird, there are very few books about our 2023 Bird of the Year Belted Kingfisher, but this week’s guest Marina Richie has written one. Her 2022 title, Halcyon Journey: In Search of the Belted Kingfisher documents the seven years she spent watching a pair of kingfishers near her home in Missoula, Montana, and her relationship with the birds and with herself. She also writes about it in an upcoming issue of Birding magazine
Also, Nate is back from the Biggest Week in American Birding
