The King

So, the other day, I had that card that failed and it had some pics of Elvis on it? Remember? Well, I managed a pic the other day of another "King".

This is actually a pic of the "Kingette", by the way. Interestingly, unlike many other birds where the name is derived from a male's trait, the Kingfisher is named after a trait found on the female. See that rufous belt? That's it! Hence, the Belted Kingfisher. An easy way to remember who is who is simply keep in mind who wears a two-piece swimsuit...usually....
