Early Morning Riser
Among the occasional jogger and dog walker, fisherman and ferry, you’re likely to spy a local resident Belted Kingfisher staking its claim.
Darting between pilings with its rattling “chatter”, (similar to the Hairy Woodpecker) foraging for tiny bunker fish, it’s an elusive neighbor perched upon its lookout.
