Kookaburra

The words of a well known Australian folk song begin "Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree..." and I must say that this gum tree is very old indeed.

It's strange I think, how the blue patch on his wings matches the colour of the insulators almost perfectly.  That's one nifty piece of camouflage!

Looks a bit perilous.

I'm always delighted to see that flash of blue on kookaburra wings ... it is somehow unexpected in an otherwise rather drab coloured bird.

Perfect. Kookaburra is a nice bird, I like them (only saw one in nature).

Welcome home! Kookaburras and lorikeets are here to tell you there's no place like OZ!
