p.1 #1 · Kookaburra


The Kookaburra is an Oz icon. It is of the Kingfisher family, but is larger than most. It is also different in that it feeds over land and will take baby birds, small snakes and lizards. If you aren't careful it will even take meat off the barbecue. In this case it was hunting ... worms.

Back in times past it was known as the Laughing Jackass. This one was neither laughing nor sitting in an old gum tree.

The bird looks positively stark raving mad in #3.

They've got a lot of personality, enjoy their work, and playing with their food. Also, their laughter does quite often get described as maniacal.

Thanks for dropping in, Morris, and for your comments..
With birds in flight (or power dive) I take them as they come. It was the best that I could do of a fast-moving bird less than 5 metres from me. It was definitely a lot more challenging than the pix I took a short while later of an osprey soaring.

Beautiful shots. So is the first pic of the bird on an old gum tree?

Just after it left a young gum tree.
It had been sitting in deep shade on a branch and suddenly it made the dive down to the ground to get breakfast. I was so surprised that I pressed the shutter button.
I'm glad that you liked them. It was great fun to experience.
