Kingfisher Finds Her Groove

This young baby belted kingfisher, who you may have seen as a baby on the VINS Facebook page, is growing big and healthy. 

Watch a video of this kingfisher! The baby bird was found at the bottom of a sand pit. Luckily, a man noticed movement at the bottom of the pit, and when he went to investigate, he found this little gal.

Did you know kingfisher feet look like this?
VINS has taken in this orphaned bird to raise her until she is able to fly and take care of herself in the wild. We are feeding her fish and bits of mouse every hour, and she's gobbling them up.


Check back for updates on this special bird.
