    Wonderful capture and striking colours Marilyn- that eye is watching your every move ! We watched a pair of laughing Kookaburra at a friends swimming pool on Bribie Island. One sat on the fence keeping guard while the other dived straight into the pool and out again for a quick cool off then they took turns !

  • Thank you so much Roy! On a recent camping trip we had a laughing Kookaburra swoop down and take a sausage off our BBQ – hubby chased him and he dropped it. It did not give up and had another attempt at our son’s plate while he was eating – so brazen!! lol!! :o)
