Kingfisher Journey- Marina Richie

The kingfisher is the halcyon bird. I began this Blog when following its path as a gypsy in my fourwheelcamper. I continue to seek stories of reciprocity for birds, all wildlife and wildlands. Always I track kingfishers that link us to our precious freshwaters and to myths of transformation. Please delve in! Marina Richie

About Marina Richie

I am a freelance writer based in Bend, Oregon. I  write about the natural world in a myriad of ways, from this personal blog to books, articles, interpretive panels, blogs, media, and websites. I recently led a project and wrote text for 65 interpretive signs with a focus on seabirds for the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge at 24 locations along the Oregon coast, mostly within Oregon State Parks.   I often write about my favorite bird, muse, and guide to personal happiness–the belted kingfisher.

I serve as president of the Board of Directors for Greater Hells Canyon Council.   After writing a conservation article about saving wild Asian elephants, I became inspired to bring Elephant Friendly Tea to Oregon and now represent the project here.
