Patience, Speed, Agility

      The Native legends describe the Kingfisher as a solitary spirit and a fierce defender of his home.  People admire the Kingfisher’s fishing skills: it is patient, agile, and quick.

      As a creature at home in various environments, the solitary and resourceful Kingfisher is also used as a spirit guide.  One of his most distinguishing features is his large head and feathered crest.  Depictions of Kingfisher often feature a strong straight beak and a strong short tail.
