522 Sacred Kingfisher

522 Sacred Kingfisher - Photography by Liz Harman

Much smaller than the Kookaburra, the only other Kingfisher in the ACT, this beautiful turquoise bird nests in tree hollows. The preservation of old trees is very important as hollows take many decades to form. One of its common calls is a harsh kek-kek-kek.
