Kookaburra: Australian Icon

12 Nov

Hands up who likes Kookaburras!

What strikingly handsome birds they are…

The ones that inhabit the local bushland park have adapted well to contact with we humans, often snatching food scraps (or even stuff that’s meant for the mouths of humans…)

Although they quite often perch on man-made structures such as railings, bubblers or even garbage-bins, they are most at home in the tall trees, especially those of the variety Eucalyptus.

Enjoy this, one of my favourite photos.

    He’s lovely. My husband and I watched a documentary on birds last night, very fascinating. They are intelligent creatures.
