Belted Kingfisher Megaceryle alcyon

Locally common in freshwater, estuarine, and coastal habitats throughout four-county area at low and moderate elevations. Requires suitable site for excavating nest burrow, preferably sandy banks—hence mostly absent from basalt-rimmed canyons of eastern Kittitas County. Infrequent at high-elevation lakes due to low prey availability.
