Although it is rate to find the Sacred Kingfisher (Todiramphus sanctus) in dry desert region, they are certainly seen in the arid region of Alice Springs in Central Australia. They are a migrant bird, with the population in the southern parts of Australia migrating to northern Australia after their breeding season.

Keep your eyes open for the Sacred Kingfisher at the Olive Pink Botanic Garden.
