The Blue-winged Kookaburra, Dacelo leachii is one of the smaller species of kookaburras at around 40 cm long. It has a light-coloured eye, no dark eye-mask, and more blue wing feathers than other species in its genus. The Blue-winged Kookaburra has a distribution from southern New Guinea and the moister parts of northern Australia, to southern Queensland across the Top End, and as far down the Western Australian coast as the Shark Bay area. The scientific name commemorates the British zoologist William Elford Leach. Widespread and common throughout its large range, the Blue-winged Kookabura is evaluated as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.Source:Wikipedia
