That's my spare feather!

By Lillian  
Kookaburra looking at me thinking...
why's she so close to me?..well it flew to me...sat there in front of me!
I had the best seat in the place...well Ade did too

the presenter and person flying this wonderful bird
knew how much I was looking forward to seeing him fly
as I kept asking throughout the day...are you going to fly him?
if he wights correctly...maybe! as he winked at me the second time of approaching him Wink

A great day there with Ade, Ron (Maiwand ) and two of my friends

Thanks for comments and awards on the Great Grey Owl

So that's what a Kookaburra looks like - saw one on a tree in Australia but not close enough to see all its fine feathers. I've always been curious since we sang 'Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree' in the Girl Guides.

Great shot the loose feather...
We are lucky enough to have these in our gardens in Melbourne. Just last week we had our bedroom sliding door open just after sunrise and one settled on our railing and sat looking at us. Obviously as I tried to stand up to fetch my camera he flew away.
