GOOD FENCES - Laughing Kookaburra

Today I am linking this post with GOOD FENCES and this is an image of a Kookaburra a friend of mine, Eddie at Mount Glorious just west of Brisbane about two years ago. His family were having lunch on the deck of a local restaurant when this character suddenly perched on the fence near Brooke. Apparently he turns up at the same time each day and waits


WARNING! Tomorrow prepare yourselves!  If any of you get sea sick, look out although we are not going on a boat, I fear it may be a ROUGH ride for some!

Many thanks Eddie for the photograph.

Many thanks for visiting and also to all who leave comments.

  1. He is a big boy with a big beak! He actually looks bigger than some of the hawks around here. I have heard them laugh on T.V. You have me very intrigued about your next post! I love coming to visit my puffin every day!

  6. I just had to stop by to admire your Kookaburra, you've got a fantastic picture of a very special bird. I just love seeing them in the wild - less so in my garden incase they decide to have a goldfish or two for tea!

  17. A dapper fellow. He seems much too sophisticated to be the source of that loud, raucous call. I'd love to see them--- and all of the other many birds of Oz.
