I was tempted to call this one the Carrot Cake Currarong Kookaburra.
This fella or one of his mates later flew into the boot of my car to pinch a piece of carrot cake.
Thanks to Keith’s wife Lorraine for the beautiful carrot cake !

Given that they eat snakes & lizards, I would have thought that something like that would be too sweet for him.

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
