#waterwednesday if you’re hanging out near the harpeth you may hear the raspy call of the belted kingfisher. these little blue birds nest in cavities along riverbanks. they perch over water and dive down to catch small fish to eat. belted kingfishers have a distinctive blue “belt” along their chest to help identify them. keep an eye out for these birds the next time you’re near a stream or river! #beltedkingfisher#birds#water#streams#rivers#franklintn#tennessee#nature
