Kookaburras Calling



A couple of kookaburras dropped by for a dip in the birdbath.
They sat there for quite a while....
splashing around....
and soaking up some sunshine.

One of my favourite birds.

What are your favourite birds?

a pair of beauties you have here. Re my favourite I think the kingfisher although I have only seen them for a few days when I was working in Dublin 7 years ago, I walked along the river bank from the hotel to the show I was working at and there they were not seen any before or since.

You know I've never seen one before although 'Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree, Merry is the king of the bushes he ...' still pops into my head from time to time - and then it's quite difficult to get out! I adore birds but I've got to say my favourite must be the humble blackbird - it's song is so sweet x Jane

What lovely birds, they look quite cuddly. One of my favourites is the Blackbird, such a lovely song.

I love kookaburras. We have green grass parrots and crimson rosellas here and I love watching them play around in the old banksia outside and swoop through the backyard following one another.

lovely birds!! I had never seen that kind of birds, where I live they are no. Thanks for showing us, the pics are very cute.
I like agaporni (think in English they are called lovebirds or something like that)
enjoy your day
