Abundant in beauty ...

and abundant in chromosomes!!!

The Azure Kingfisher is arguably one of the prettiest and most colourful birds in our catchment. These little kingfishers live across the top end of Australia and right down the east coast, all the way to Tasmania.

An interesting fact: humans have 46 chromosomes in their bodies.
