I saw Belted Kingfisher flying low over the Indian River near the Warsaw Caves yesterday. Is it late in the season to see this bird or do they usually migrate from our area?

Note: Small numbers of kingfishers will sometimes overwinter in the Kawarthas, as long as there is open water for fishing.  D.M.
