canyon kingfisher

Larry Ballard

A male Belted Kingfisher was along Cold Spring Creek about a half mile above Mountain Dr. in Montecito and was seen feeding on tadpoles of the California tree frog.

Steller's Jays were in the same area. They were confirmed breeding in Romero Canyon this year and suspected of breeding in San Ysidro and Cold Spring Canyons.
