The wider view..

 

'It was said that a kookaburra's laugh is there to remind us to say or do something kind.. that goodness will then come back to you with happiness and laughter.. Gregg Dreise.

Love the sentiment in the quote above. I would be fibbing if I said I spotted the kookaburra here perched looking for its next meal, thank heavens P has eagle eyes when it comes to spotting birds of the feathered kind :) Not a bad view it has there looking out over the Swan River from its perch in Kings Park. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  1. It's so amazing to see these photos of this happy little bird. I'm always reminded of my childhood scouting days when we used to sing the Kookaburra Song.

  5. Beautiful photos of this iconic Australian bird. It may live in Australia, but it's laugh is heard around the world.

  6. They can be hard to spot when they are on a tree with bark similar to their colour.

  9. Such a cutie pie, P is best, Grace!
    I still wonder if the small blue bird existed, though.
