Today this young kookaburra
came to visit. There were two of them flying around in the garden behind us and were being harassed by the magpies and noisy minas. I am not sure what they were looking for but they didn't have a chance to settle. Anyway I went outside to try to take a photo and one of the kookaburras landed on the veranda just above me. It seemed to be quite a young bird and stayed still long enough to have its photo taken. We often hear these iconic Australian birds in the early morning and at dusk but they are well camouflaged. It is a real privilege to see them up close.
