Kookaburra Grabs a Treat

Margaret's Classic Posts

It’s not uncommon to discover Australia’s Laughing Kookaburras looking for whatever they can find that picnickers have left behind – or even for these bold birds to snatch a piece of someone’s lunch.

But recently I saw one, that was about to fly off with a piece of orange rind in its beak. Maybe it was health-conscious… How much better was this than, say, half a burned sausage?

    Lovely picture, as always ♪ This little cutie reminds me of our magpies, always looking for something to nibble on !

      🙂 I wonder how your magpies differ from ours… I’ll look for a photo for another post…

        Oh please do, I’d love to see them through your lens. 🙂 Our magpies are very pretty, black & white with bluish wingtips and long dark blue tails and their young are super cute with their pinkish feathers. Australian Kookaburras are actually more like our Jays in appearance.
