He's all puffed up against the cold.
He has been here for at least two days at the Rondeau Provincial Park visitor centre.
We saw lots of these down in Texas but it's the first one up here.

We weren't food and we weren't a predator so it ignored us

Don't know the species but I liked the surprised look on its face.

It staid for a moment then retreated with the waves.
It isn't a manta ray, those are very large and this one was small.
It was about 15 inches across and 30 inches long.
If you know the proper name please let me know.

About 16 inches long, 41 cm, and prefers marshes and slow moving water.
He is much bigger than the belted kingfisher we have in Ontario. Ours is about 13
in. - 33cm, in length.
We saw this one in southeast Texas.

I looked out the window and saw it coming so I grabbed my camera and took a quick photo.
Surprised it turned out.

It's in non breeding plumage so it doesn't have a red throat.
It was a fair way out in the lake but I was able to get a reasonable photo of this life bird.
