Young Kingfisher – one of 6 boys who were rescued, and were all released back into the wild.

You can tell it’s young because of a white spot on it’s beak. When they become adults, the beak is more curved, and the white spot disappears. They also become very slim.

New Zealand native bird – and subspecies to the Sacred Kinfisher of Australia.

    Nice photo of the Kingfisher, they are so hard to photograph as they are always moving.

  • Except when they’re sunning themselves on a nice branch :)
