Belted Kingfisher and Pale Male

My birding centered around Turtle Pond in Central Park today.  The Pond had a pair of Belted Kingfishers, one of whom seemed to be exhausted after getting wet while fishing.  After the Kingfisher's it was Pale Male who was very photogenic, leading photographers and bird watchers on a journey from tree to tree until he caught a rat.  It was a fun Sunday afternoon.
