Looking north

This young Sacred Kingfisher is looking north … about to follow the migratory path of its ancestors along the Great Dividing Range, perhaps as far as New Guinea or even the Solomon Islands. I’ve seen quite a number of immature birds over recent weeks but no adults. Perhaps they have already left. How the young kingfishers know what path to take is another of nature’s great mysteries.
