The Juvenile Kingfisher


My final kingfisher post. 2 photos of a juvenile; you can tell it’s a juvenile by the white tip at the end of it’s beak.

In this second shot you can see that it has become very windy but I love the way the water drops are sitting on it’s chest feathers.

If you are viewing on a phone you may need to click on “View full site” which will be right at the very bottom of the page, you will then be able to view the photos with a black background as they should be viewed.


If you don’t already know my other blog 1500 Saturdays I hope you’ll pop over and take a look, though I don’t post much these days here

  1. Helen! I LOVE this whole Kingfisher series! They are indeed beautiful birds, and you captured so many stunning images of them. I just read a book by another British Helen, Helen Macdonald, her wonderful collection of essays titled “Vesper Flights,” and so it’s amazing that you visited my blog and left a comment recently, inspiring me to visit your blog, and your kingfisher photos of course made me think of Helen M. and the exquisite way she writes about birds and their habitat. Cheers!

    • I haven’t been blogging or visiting blogs so much in 2021 but hope to do better in 2022. I am so very happy to reconnect with you again Howard.. and so glad you enjoyed these Kingfishers, they are so aptly named. I will look out for the other Helen’s book.

  2. Kingfishers are very beautiful birds. There are many different species of kingfisher found all around the world, and each one is extremely photogenic. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva
