A Bird in the Bush

Meet Dacelo leachii - The Blue-Winged Kookaburra
Not to be confused with Dacelo novaeguineae, the Laughing Kookaburra, which is bigger.
Both of course, one of Australia's iconic 'emblems.'
I photographed this little guy on my last visit to Melbourne - in February - in the small Victorian town of Woodend, an hour north of the city.
