Belted Kingfisher

Megaceryle alcyon

This species has only been found approximately nine times in the Pribilofs during the fall season from mid-August to mid-September, which coincides with their retreat from much of their summer breeding range in Alaska. This is likely the only period in which this species will be found on the islands in the future.
