Where do we go from here???( Added Comments)

Thanks Ivan R.
Hey Ed B. Is this a King Fisher???
That was a great picture Ivan had up yesterday. Our local bird, the Belted Kingfisher, has a remarkable tuft on its head resembling a Punk hairdo.

The bright coloring shown in Ivan's photo points me towards Central and South America. They have two brightly colored Kingfishers and his could be one of those. They might have been found as far north as Mexico or the southern US.
I refer to the Green Kingfisher and the Ringed Kingfisher.

Thanks Ed B.
