I hope I'm not pushing my luck with three bird posts
almost in a row :) I really wanted to share this uniquely Australian experience with you. Sitting outside on my patio a few days ago I was joined by Mr Kookaburra who sat looking at me intently as if to say 'I've heard you feed all the stray cats in the neighborhood, and the seed eating birds.. so come on it's our turn'. He was joined by Mrs K and their two offspring. Laughing kookaburras are carnivorous so I thought they might like a bit of roast beef, they did, eating it almost out of my hand. They weren't bothered about me taking close ups at all..
Perched on top of the swimming pool umbrella they looked down at me as if to say 'the rumours are true, we'll be back tomorrow for more'.. and they were :) It's not a habit I will get into though, I'm pretty sure a diet of roast beef might not be a good idea for wild birds, a bit like junk food, a little now and then won't hurt. Their comical close-ups are pretty cute though :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..
