Pygmy Kingfisher at Ammo Dump Ponds, a report by Carlos Bethancourt


I just wanted to share this pic of American Pygmy-Kingfisher that was observed by me and a group of birders from Oregon. The interesting thing is that this beautiful bird was around for about an hour and constantly feeding, taking the food away and coming back to three different spots over the water at Ammo Ponds. I could say that it probably has a nest nearby, but I couldn't work a lot on this bird since there was a lot going on at Ammo ponds....
We also got great views of male and female Olivaceous Piculet, Yellow-tailed Oriole, Southern Lapwing, Yellow-crowned Tyrannulet, Scrub Greenlet, Immature Rufescent Tiger-Heron, Great Blue Heron, Striated Heron, White-throated Crake etc... It was a nonstop birding afternoon...
