Hello Tom
I live in Potsdam, St. Lawrence County and I have a large swamp on my land and 
I am sorry to say I have noticed a lack of Kingfishers on my property, as well 
as at other locations where I look for them each year.  St.Lawrence County has 
numerous wetland areas that I frequently visit to look for birds and it seems 
the Kingfishers are missing.  I noticed a drop in them last year too but I 
cannot say I have any idea as to why, it is one of my favorite birds.

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.  

Thanks for any input,  Tom Rhindress
