Dinner Time

It was late in the afternoon when I heard a Kookaburra ruckus. The usual cackling but also the sound of a young Kookaburra trying to make the adult sounds. It became a raspy sound of a young bird making demands of its parents. Here is a short photo story of the Kookaburras at dinner time.

“Hey Mum, What’s Dad doing down there?”

Just then Dad flew up into the tree with a stick. No its not, it is a Stick Insect.

A bit of adjusting to make sure  the Stick Insect didn’t fall again as it did once before.

“Here you go young one……catch”

“Thanks Dad. This looks like a good dinner.”

“I’m not sure if I should let go. What should I do?”

“OK. Here goes. Down the hatch!”

Dad basks in the glow of the afternoon sun, another lesson and dinner over for the evening.

PS I did feel sorry for the Stick Insect as there aren’t as many around as there were years ago. This series of photos were taken from my veranda. Do you see birds feeding around your place?
