Belted Kingfisher

Friday, September 16, I had a chance to try out a new (to me) park.  Bicentennial Park in Provo.  It's a big park.  They have a fenced in dog park (with a fire hydrant in the middle for the dogs- heh heh).  Huge open grassy area and hill.  Frisbee golf course.  Playgrounds.  Restrooms.  Trees.  A duck pond with a bridge over it.  And... and... and... they have a boardwalk that goes through a wetland and willow forest.  :D  Yeah, awesome.
At one point I was walking along an area of the boardwalk and I heard a familiar bird sound.  It sounded like a belted kingfisher.  Jeremy and I had seen and heard some just this Summer while we were in Oregon.
Well, to make a long story short, I found the belted kingfisher that I had been hearing.  So awesome.
And I have to share this because even simple things can make me happy.  I found out looking back at my blog that the last (and first and only) time I saw a belted kingfisher in Utah was... wait for it... September 16, 2015.  Exactly one year before I saw this one.  How fun is that?  I tell you.  It's the simple things in life.


  1. And because of random things... I figured out that this park is where they filmed a Studio C sketch called "Third Wheel Song."

  2. And today, September 18, is National Cheeseburger Day. Jeremy made cheeseburgers for us for dinner. He's the best.
