The everyday of our family farm
Nice photos. They brought back memories of the song we used to sing in grade school.Laugh, Kookaburra! Laugh, Kookaburra!Gay your life must be
The Kookaburra laugh is very distinctive at dawn & dusk. Some say when you hear the Kookaburra laugh in the afternoon rain is on its way...
Gay your life must be indeed. Great photos. How do you photograph kooka chicks in a nest? I don't even know where they nest. Hay bales?
Not easily! A pair of Kookaburras nest every year in a stack of hay bales on our farm... a new nest every year, different hay stack. They build their nest between 2 bales (hence why you can see the blue twine that wraps around the bales) very high up, about 5-6 metres up the stack. So the only way you can see them is via a ladder. The nest is a fair way into the bales, and when they are little you can only see them by taking a photo with an iPhone.

They look so naked in the top picture..... Super shots, Lynda.
Ooooh. It is too long since I have seen a kooka, and I have NEVER seen a baby. How lucky you are.
Pretty babes, excellent photos.
Those 'naked' chicks don't look that good,but they do look much better as they grow.
They aren't really the prettiest of chicks when newly hatched.
Oh my! How sweet that is. Never seen anything like that before. Thanks.
Oh, so adorable...lucky you to get to photograph them.
Wow lucky you to follow this life cycle.Diane
