Wild Bird Wednesdy 480 - Kingfishers

This week Melbourne achieved the unenviable distinction of being the town that has spent the longest time in lock down as a result of you know what.  A while ago in an attempt to raise my spirits, I collated all the pictures of Kingfishers I had taken and shared them a day at a time on Facebook.  People seemed to like them, so here is the collection.

Blue Winged Kookaburra - Australia

Forest Kingfisher - Australia

Common Kingfisher - UK

Laughing Kookaburra - Australia

Little Kingfisher - Australia

Sacred Kingfisher - Australia

White Fronted Kingfisher - India

Azure Kingfisher - Australia

Wonderful birds one and all.  Lets hope we are all out and about soon.

  1. Stay safe friend. This too will end.

  2. Well who does not love Kingfishers. They are all beautiful in their own way Stewart. Thanks for hosting still take care and have a good week ahead

  3. I really enjoy kingfishers but our are plain compared to yours! That second last one is exceptionally beautiful.

  4. I am so pleased you included the UK one as I am a huge fan. I have seen one a few times. Well truth be known I have seen the iridescent blue flash as it speeds past. Hope you get your freedom back soon.

  5. What a collection! I feel deprived as we have only one local species. Did pick up two more once on a trip to south Texas.

  6. Hari Om
    A fruitful collection of fine feathers brought about due to restrictions - so not all bad! YAM xx

  7. Great collection of kingfishers. Nice to see the Common and White-throated variety that we have here in Bangalore.

  8. That is quite a gallery, Stewart. I shall look forward to your illustrated guide.

  9. Beautiful birds! And so much more colorful than the Kingfishers here in the US
