It's so hilarious!



Don't we all know someone who, when they laugh it's so darn infectious you end up laughing along with them even though you're not sure what the joke is :) They may not look as strange as the cutie from yesterdays post but have a listen here, the laugh of the Kookaburra has to be heard to be believed.. it's so hysterical that it's almost impossible not to smile when you hear it! The Kookaburra 'laughs' to establish it's territorial boundaries, the two above were letting the chap below know that this perch above was taken, buzz off!
 

I hadn't noticed the turquoise blue feathers on the Kookaburra's wings before, tres jolie oui! This week has ziiiiped by in a flash for me, looking forward to a quieter weekend, how about you? Happy Friday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. don't let that blue sky fool you, that was Wednesday, it rained bucket-loads all day yesterday!

  10. You got me laughing too!

    Our family living outside Melbourne are off to China for 3 years! It will be an exciting adventure for them but how can they leave your beautiful Australia :(.

  11. Oh, Grace, do I love the sound of them! We heard them in the wild when travelling your beautiful country. In German they are called "lachender (laughing) Hans" - the ones we have here at the zoo are quiet, no wonder, poor ones.
    Rainy and only 14C over here. Summer?

  13. Grace, i've never been much of an "early morning chirpy", but it's hard to start a day without a smile in my dial when one of these are telling me to get over myself!
    It looks to me, in your top photo, that they are actually having a gossip ! TY for sharing - lovely wake up call :)

  14. Great photos of this bird. Thanks for the link to their song. That should wake you up in the morning with a smile.

  15. Probably why they are called the blue winged kookaburra. I wonder if there is any other kind?

  16. Our dogs were not as amused as I when I listened to the link you provided. An unusual bird. . . fun!

  17. When I was a kid and belonged to a Girl Scout troop, we used to sing a song about kookaburras; "kookaburra sits in the old gum tree, merry, merry king of the bush is he, laugh kookaburra, laugh." I have to say that listening to that video was pure joy. It not only made me smile, it made me laugh too. You are so right, that laugh is infectious.

  27. Love Kookaburras, I didn't know they "laughed" to establish their boundaries.

  31. Ach!!! Reminds me of Girl Scouts back when I was a munchkin!!! "Kookabura sits in the old oak tree, merry, merry king of the bush is he..." (I totally remembered the first part of this..had to look up the second part of the line though!!!)
