Sacred Kingfisher Gallery

Todiramphus sanctus
Less than half the size of their big cousins the Kookaburras, these little guy live and breed in the eucalypts at Wombolly. Their various shades of blue and green are often seen flashing from tree to ground as their long, pointed beaks seek out a worm or grub. They can aggressively protect their territory from perceived threats - see Brown Goshawk page.  Clcik on images to enlarge.
