Azure kingfisher

Of all the kingfishers that are found in my area that is the Sunshine coast of QLD the Azure kingfisher is the most striking and is the most secretive. The Sacred kingfisher seams to be an easier kingfisher to approach. This Australian bird when it is spotted is normally sitting on a branch near the water, if you happen to see an Azure kingfisher you will notice that it will be attentively gazing into the waters of the creek in search of small fish or other Crustacea. When this Australian bird spots you. However, it will quickly dart off normally a fairly short distance under 20 meters calling as it goes to its mate to alert it of the danger within the area.
