Are you sitting comfortably?


Then I'll begin. This is a picture of a kookaburra. I know because our grandson sent it from Australia and he has one just like it in his garden. One of the more friendly examples of wildlife down under I think.

Did it laugh at the previous post? *ducks*

PI said...

John.g: no but MTL reacted like you - dammit!

lovely
it makes me want to go there and see it

Kevin Musgrove said...

Still not sure I'd like to find one lurking under the toilet seat, though.

PI said...

David: they make a distinctive sound too - lovely background music

David, see it? If you can only HEAR it...it is the most hilarious thing.

PI said...

Kevin: I think they are fairly large- you'd probably spot it. I have a horror of a rat popping up from the sewers when seated on the loo - as happened to a neighbour when we rented a villa in Spain. On the same holiday the water and electricity went off for three days.

GG: I'm sure I heard it when I was in Australia. I wonder if it's on u tube?

PI said...

GG and David: yes! Laughing kookaburra. You can hear it but can't embed it.

Oh what a DARLING Bird he is! I love seeing Birds that we don't have here....Wouldn't you just love to see that one in his garden?

Very friendly, Pat - although they've a beak on them to be avoided. I've been told that they usually appear before rain. Probably explains why we've not seen many lately...
