Earlier this year we visited Pollywog Pond, northwest of Corpus Christi, for the first time. Then, I got my first glimpse of a Green Kingfisher. On this trip, I got a much better view and some nice image. Unlike the Belted Kingfisher, this one does not hunt by hovering over open water. Instead, it was racing up and down an overgrown sluice close to the water. I never saw it make a catch though I watched it for an hour.
