Is this a juvenile Forest Kingfisher? Taken on the lower slopes of Mt Lewis (QLD) on March 1st. Looking in Morcombe seems the most likely, but can't be sure.
Thanks, Greg

I think the colour is too dark for Forest. I am inclined to juvenile Buff Breasted Paradise-Kingfisher.

Thanks Simon, I think you are right. It was close to where I could hear a B B P-K nest, and I saw an adult a bit down the hill. The scruffy appearance doesn't match ideally the Juvenile description in Morcombe's, but with your suggestion I searched and found some similar images.
