CommentThis was my first encounter of a Sacred Kingfisher, discovered close to the Moonee Ponds Creek within the Woodlands Historic Park. It perched briefly just for long enough to take this photo. The morning sun is catching some its beautiful blue, green and buff plumage. The deeper blue in the wing feathers suggests it is a male.
