These lovely kookaburras are more like the traditional kingfishers. They have a smaller body and larger head than their southern relatives the Laughing Kookaburra.

I was looking for this little fella when I was last up Cairns way, but did not see him. I am hoping to one day. That’s a great shot Margo!
Thanks.. very obligingly sat on the electricity cable where I was sitting at Alma Bay.
Gorgeous shot of a lovely bird. The body shape sure does remind me of a kingfisher.
Yes. The kookaburra is grouped with the Kingfisher and the similarities are not hard to spot.
It’s fascinating to think how the ordinary birds for you seem so exotic to me.
Absolutely beautiful, Margo, both as a portrait, and in terms of Minimalist composition. Adrian
