Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfisher

Well it's happened again - 15 mins ago a 'thump' against the office window and another stunned little Kingfisher on the verandah.  These seem to be my best photo opportunities as they are so hard to snap in the wild!  Peter was able to pick it up and put it on the verandah rail to recover - and as I type this it has just flown off.

It is one of the many mature birds here now ... and we're  hoping to catch sight of some juveniles soon.
