Mrs Kookaburra

By Lillian  
A relative to the kingfisher
and what an entertainer she was.

Visited Hawk Conservancy yesterday with friends
high ISO as it works well on this camera
and we had a lot of flight shots


Thought better put a more cheerful image on
as Mr Grumpy... was grumpy!

My thanks for your comments and awards on the Bald Eagle
all appreciated


Off early morning..so enjoy your week...as I know I will


Lillian

Gorgeous Lillian- didn't know we had them in Britain - reminds me of the song in our girl guide days.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh, Kookaburra! Laugh, Kookaburra!
Gay your life must be

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Eating all the gum drops he can see
Stop, Kookaburra! Stop, Kookaburra!
Leave some there for me

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Counting all the monkeys he can see
Stop, Kookaburra! Stop, Kookaburra!
That's not a monkey that's me

Kookaburra sits on a rusty nail
Gets a boo-boo in his tail
Cry, Kookaburra! Cry, kookaburra!
Oh how life can be

Unusual bird - the head looks too big for the body, or the tail too short! Wonderful photo, Lillian!
