Moose Population Declining In New Hampshire____________________________________
 Belted Kingfishers have been known to share their tunnels with swallows. The swallows dig out small rooms tucked in the tunnel walls. Human activity, such as digging gravel pits and building roads, have created banks where they can build nests and expand their breeding range. To avoid being eaten by hawks, they will dive into the water. A group of belted kingfishers are collectivelyknown as a "crown" and a "rattle" of kingfishers. - Duane Cross Photo.
