Tail coloration & references[edit]

Fledgling male kookaburras have tails similar in colour to the females. The blue coloration spreads gradually down the tail during the first year.

I would like to add the word "adult" to the first paragraph's description of tail colour, i.e. blue in adult males. Similarly, in the later description. Skythrops (talk) 22:51, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Also, Legge is a secondary reference to this work. The original source, referred to in this book, and which refers to the above coloration too, is: Curl, D.A. (1997) PhD thesis: The Call of the Kookaburra, Monash University, Australia HANZAB also uses this as a primary source. Skythrops (talk) 23:19, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
