Nearly every day since moving down to Rosebud, we have been getting visitors in our backyard. I love the name Rosebud as Roses is one of my favorite flowers of which I have many.
This morning I pulled up the kitchen blind and this is what I saw. Some days there are two or more. Today he was on his own.
Looked like he was contemplating life.
It was a bit windy this morning. Just after I took this picture he did his “laugh”. I missed it.
This particular Kookaburra is a Laughing Kookaburra from the Kingfisher family. They are found mainly on the east coast of Australia.
Kookaburras eat mice, rats, snakes, lizards and the odd small bird. Oh they also like to swoop between you and your partner to pinch the sausage you were both eating. All we heard was the noise of its wings, it never touched either of us. It was funny to watch it “kill” the sausage in the tree. Banging it on a branch again and again.
This gorgeous bird the Rosella was in the front garden just the other day. Again it was the pulling the bedroom blind up to see this.
I really do feel so lucky living where I do with all the beautiful bird life.
