Kingfisher strikes window

Not really outdoor news, but a local Kingfisher flew into a window last week and accidentally killed himself. Kingfisher's are normally found near water with open terrain surroundings. Perhaps something was 'after' this bird to make him leave the normal flight path and head towards a home. Even though the window glass was adorned with stickers designed to reveal the glass panel to oncoming birds, sometimes they hit with such authority that mortality is assured. The kingfisher is a graceful fisherman that Lowcountryoutdoors encounters just about everywhere that the outdoor tradition of fishing leads, and is one of the members of our rich community of avian friends that is worthy of high praise.
