The everyday of our family farm
It is years since I have seen a Kooka. I hear them occasionally...Lucky you.
We are very fortunate to have a pair of Kookaburras that nest in our hayshed each year. So they have made themselves quite at home here.
I love this picture. I found your blog via Rose.
Welcome. It is so lovely to hear from you.
I am so excited to see a photo of a kookaburra. Our 4-H club used to sing a song, "Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree, merry, merry king of the bush is he. Laugh, Kookaburra. Laugh, Kookaburra. Gay your life must be." I'm also impressed you got a bird photo. I don't have much luck with that!
That is a song all too familiar with us Australians. It is kinda cool that you know that song as well! We have quite a lot of birdlife around here. It is so beautiful to hear and see all the birds. I love it. And yes, some a very difficult to photograph - particularly the wrens. Others like the Galahs are much easier. Look under the category "birds" to see many more.
tough little fellow!
I'd love to let some loose in this part of the world--- Their calls would confuse everyone! Great shot!
Thanks Bill. Yes I feel they would confuse people. Their laugh is quite unique.
Such a lovely bird ! Nice to see a new bird !
Fabulous shot Lynda, these fellows are masters at choosing perfect perches for perfect shots. I'm sure they know :)
What a gorgeous fellow. We have them visiting around our place too.
Lovely, lovely bird of the bushes!Linda ★★http://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.comhttps://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/sherlock-boomer
I would love to have these around here...their head looks almost too big for their body. It only makes them cuter...
