Blue-winged kookaburra (Dacelo leachii)
The Blue-winged Kookaburra is a large species of kingfisher native to northern Australia and southern New Guinea. It is sexually dimorphic, with a blue tail in the male, and a rufous tail with blackish bars in the female. The Blue-winged Kookaburra hunts and eats a great variety of animals that live on or close to the ground. In the summer wet season, insects, lizards and frogs make up a higher proportion of their diet, while they eat arthropods such as crayfish, scorpions, spiders, fish, earthworms, small birds and rodents at other times. They have even been recorded waiting for and snatching insects flushed out by bushfires. The Blue-winged Kookaburra is a cooperative breeder, a group being made up of a breeding pair and one or more helper birds who help raise the young.
