Looking up at the Laughing Kookaburras

I was listening to the world outside. I heard a sound like someone gargling. Knowing I was the only one home at the time, I went to investigate. Yes as walking outside at my place could always be a photo opportunity, I had my camera.

On a branch was a young Laughing Kookaburra making the “I really am a Kookaburra….listen to this” absolutely weird sound. Not a moment later came the sounds of a real Laughing Kookaburra. Here let me tell you what I was told happened.

“Hey, is anyone here?”
“I’ve got lunch.”
“Have you seen how fast these blokes go?”

“I thought you were hungry?”
“Look what I caught.”

“I know you’re here somewhere.”
“Did you fly over there?”
“These taste real juicy.”

“Is that you?”
“I’m sure I heard something”
“I bet he’s playing a game with me.”

“Here….have a look at this;”
“It is so wonderful tasting.”
I am just going to have to eat it ALL myself!”

“No Dad….don’t do that.”
“I’m here.”
“I’ll have some dinner please.”

“Well then……..you better get over here as quick as you can.”
OK Dad….here I come.”

and that is the story of the Laughing Kookaburras on a tree just off my verandah

I am sure some would have noticed that the photos are also square for Becky’s Square Photo Challenge #SquareUp (sorry Becky, no music with this one)

  1. No music! Brian, I rely on you! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I expected a laughing kookaburra recording at least, but you’re forgiven as you’ve been absent all week and I was starting to worry. And he is such a gorgeous little creature. Love the story!

    1. Sorry to disappoint Jo. Music would have distracted from the post I thought πŸ˜€ Yes away I have been. Had to do an EEG before seeing the Neuro in a couple of weeks. Wasn’t in the mood to turn the tablet on and do stuff. It was nice to have a bit of a break. Didn’t mean to make people worry ❀ ❀


      1. It’s not so long, now you’ve come this far, but I’m sure the wait feels endless. We’ve just been put on a month’s lockdown and that seems a long time too, but not as long as the wait until Easter when- fingers crossed- I can travel to the UK to see the young uns.

  2. I’ve often wondered what these birds look like, never having managed to see one on my trips to Australia and always been too lazy to Google a picture of one. Now I need wonder no more. Lovely pix.

  3. What a great series, Brian! I’ve always been familiar with phrases such as “He’s such a kookaburra” but I’ve never actually seen one, at least of the bird variety, so that made this even more fun. And since I know you’re into music, let me quote Rod here: ”

    So remember, every picture tells a story, don’t it
    Every picture tells a story, don’t it.”
