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

The Noisy Miner is keeping a watchful eye out. They can make like hell for larger birds with their "Red Baron" tactics.

Great bird the Kookaburra! I will probably have that blasted tune in my head all day. In another age, I used to teach that to Grade 3 children.

Some great pics here, they must be on the lookout for lizards!

Wonderful birds. I used to feed them when I lived in Australia. Loved their cry - or laugh, I should say.

Wow, they're big! And I just this week heard a recording of their call on my local public radio station.
Funny, I learned that song in grade school in Pennsylvania, but never quite grasped what the "laugh" really was until recently. I learn so much on CDP!

Nice shots! I don't remember if I have seen them before.
