Kookaburra on my deck chair

It has rained all week, and slowed to a slight drizzle, so I might have to just spend some time sitting in the deckchair reading instead of gardening.  It looks as though I have a friend to join me.

  1. I've heard of the bird, but now I have a face to put to the name. What a nice friend to pass the time with!

    1. I love their happy laugh - they are very welcome guests in my garden.

  2. We've been getting patchy rain down here, and we're longing for the week of rain you're talking about. It seems the wet is going to be rather dry for us this year. Love the shot!

    1. Bernie,
      Luckily we had a couple of hours of sunshine on Sunday afternoon and I managed to cut some overhanging branches back. the garden looks lovely, but things grow too fast!

  3. Lovely birds, here in Perth I only see them in the "Hills" suburbs, where there are larger green areas.

    1. Sami,
      we have a creek next to us and in the evenings they go through hours of serenading each other down to the creek where they obviously settle for the night.

  5. Lovely. I think it is the sentimental nostalgia of the primary school song that stirs the emotions when you see them. I always got a thrill when I saw them when in Australia.

    1. That song has so many different versions. I dont think you can listen to a kookaburra laughing and not get a smile on your face :)
