Blue winged Kookaburra (Dacelo leachii)

The Blue winged Kookaburra is restricted to northern Australia and southern New Guinea. In Queensland it shares habitat with the better known Laughing Kookaburra. The call of this bird can be heard there, unlike the Laughing Kookaburra it never quite gets the laugh going! These birds live in extended family groups and declare their ownership of an area with collective singing.
