A Kingfisher Calls into Capella

March 18, 2012

We had a visitor to the lodge this morning.

A beautiful Sacred Kingfisher, its azure blue feathers matching the subtropical Lord Howe lagoon called into visit, thinking the reflection in the lodge’s floor-to-ceiling windows meant more blue skies and ocean stretching out before him.

Though tempted by the luxurious surrounds, he took a moment to recover before flying back to join the abundant birdlife on the island.
