The male is easily distinguished from the female by the blue of the wings and the dark blue of the tail
The female has some light blue on the wings but has no blue on the taill.
It does not have a beautiful song, it is very unpleasant !
We have already seen this bird but we have hated his shout.

My experience with kangaroos
During my last holidays, I have been to South Australia, not far away from Adelaïde, I have visited kangaroo Island.
It was wonderful. I have seen walabies and kangaroos. They are nearly similar, but kangaroos are taller ( they can be two meters high )
It was possible to feed the animals, it was great ! But I was afraid to be bitten.
Kangaroo Island is a place where it is possible to admire freely kangaroo. It is an unique experience !
The mother kangaroo has carried her baby in her pocket on her belly, it was so cute !
I will keep a fantastic souvenir of my visit of Kangaroo Island !
