To the group, especially my fellow Upstaters, I live in Ulster County, with approximately 1000 feet of frontage along Roundout Creek. During the summers of 2017 and 2018, I would see/hear kingfishers daily. This summer I have observed them 2 or 3 times.
Are others seeing a similar lack of kingfishers? We had way above average rain from August to early October last year. Wondering if this may have had negative impact on prey availability, or on last year's nest success.
