A short spell with a few of Invermere’s belted kingfishers

It seems longer than a month ago when Kian and I went to the Columbia Valley in British Columbia for the Labour Day long weekend.

We had a great time skateboarding in Invermere, touring around Fairmont and even did a little swimming which was unreasonably cold for the late summer.

Photography wasn’t the focus of our trip but, unsurprisingly, I fit a little in here and there.  Easily the best of these was our walk along the narrow channel of the Columbia River where it meets the northern tip of Windermere Lake.  We found five kingfishers chattering, flying and occasionally diving along the water.

This juvenile alighted on the pillar near us as we were watching another one flying on the far side of the river.  He stayed for several minutes.  Drawing a flyby from one kingfisher but mostly left alone to scout for dinner before the sun set.

  1. Glad to be reading your posts again. This is a favorite post of yours–I enjoyed the Kingfishers a lot but really liked the ones of Kian. Such a good one of him skating and best wishes to him. My son, Josh Falk, is a pro skater, sponsored and has been a very long while. He has the passion for it and at over 40 continues to skate–and appears in skateboarding films and magazines, etc. But I find it nearly impossible with my neophyte skills to photograph him.
