Kookaburra

Kookaburras, Hawkesbury River, NSW, Australia.

Kookaburras are only found in Australia and New Guinea, but their harsh laughing call is always heard in jungle scenes in movies. They’re always there in Tarzan films. They are large confident birds that live by hunting.

They enjoy watching humans digging in the gardenas as they can swoop down and get worms or other tasty morsels.

I tried to encourage them to be in my garden by leaving scraps for them. Pretty soon there were ten of then, very noisy first thing in the morning!

I’m not an ornithologist, or even a ‘twitcher’, but I do love these strong and beautiful creatures.
