Keywords:Belted Kingfisher, Ceryle alcyon, territorial behavior, migration, stopover, Lake Huron, Michigan
AbstractThe Belted Kingfisher (Ceryle alcyon) exhibits territorial behavior during breeding and on the wintering grounds. However, behavior during migration is poorly documented. Here, I report on kingfishers exhibiting territorial behavior during fall migration along the shoreline of northern Lake Huron, Michigan.
