Red-backed Kingfisher, White-backed Swallow
Eulah Creek
Today is the day! The pair of Red-backed Kingfishers near the Bullawa Creek bridge, 15 km east of Narrabri, have successfully raised a brood of chicks and are releasing into this world a batch of "mini-kookaburras" (see photo). The first fledgling was out when I checked at 8:30 this morning and there were still calls coming from the nest tunnel, but I did not stick around to count how many there are in total. Just an aside on such an occasion: There are still some White-backed Swallows around, but no sign of breeding activity. Further information
