We hear Blue-winged Kookaburras (Dacelo leachii) more often than we see them but this one spent an hour or more in our garden a few weeks ago and I enjoyed waiting for her different poses. (This photo doesn’t tell us she’s female but other views do: females’ tail feathers are red-brown while males’ are bright blue.)
