AZURE KINGFISHER
Alcedo azurea 18 cm

         In Australia the Azure Kingfisher occurs widely on watercourses and lakes in the
 north and east that have densely vegetated margins.

         Mostly it is seen skimming over the water in rapid flight, or plunging for small fishes
 from a low perch.

     Its call is high pitched and difficult to hear.

     The nest is a hole in a bank close to the water's edge. 

     Round Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodge it is present on watercourses in the
 rainforest, and at Lake Eacham.
