Juvenile sacred kingfishers take to the wing to test their flying skills

This week’s reader photo was taken by Brodie in Queensland:

“This pair of juvenile sacred kingfishers (Todiramphus sanctus) had only just left the nest a couple of hours before landing here. At the time of the photograph both birds could only fly very slowly and would tire quickly. You can see one bird here stretching his wing after an exhausting 20m flight and sitting close to his sibling, posing perfectly for a photo,” he said.
