Most of us think of bird nests being located from the ground all the way up to some of the higher branches in trees. However, there are two species of local birds that actually nest underground.
The belted kingfisher, a 13-inch long, gray and white bird with a 20-inch wingspan, always excavates a 6-foot long burrow that ends in an enlarged chamber, preferably near water. The excavation is in an 8-inch to 10-inch high bank. Both male and female do the actual digging. A new burrow is dug almost every year although, occasionally, last year's burrow will suffice.
