Been a few years since I managed a decent shot of a Dollarbird but got lucky again earlier this month.

Always seem to perch breakneck high unless you can find a spot with a high vantage point.

Wow. As a lifelong Australian (well apart from my first 3 years), I've never seen one of these.
Spectacular plumage, and what a great shot you got of it.
When I saw your post I had to Google this species and of course it doesn't range down to Victoria. I also found it interesting that this is the one type of 'roller bird' that lives here, and I can see the resemblance to the roller birds I saw in Africa.
Well done, and thanks for sharing.

Cheers.
Do range well down into Vic though, saw a report of one down on the Yarra around Melbourne just a month ago so could well get them down there if you find the right spot.
A good guide for what's about is the eBird database, allows you to put in a species and see virtually a global sightings map for a single species.
Looks like the last "confirmed" sighting was around Puckapunyal a week or so ago...wonder if it was at a passing out parade?
