as a fisherman I often have kingfishers for company, usually don't see them but hear their chattering as they flee me.
Last weekend there was a pair that was rattling and screaming around the pond, heard one dive with a splash so large I thought it was a pelican..
handsome birds, good company.

On trout streams it is often the ouzel (dipper) that consoles my biophilia. As John Muir wrote,
