This morning I heard a kookaburra and looked out my window to see one sitting in the centre of my clothes line amongst my clothes! I raced out to the back verandah and managed to get in a quick photo before he flew away. Sorry I didn’t have time to get a close-up shot so he’s a bit hard to see.
Later in the afternoon I glanced out the window again, and saw him perched on the edge of the clothes line. I took another photo and then felt inspired, so took a photo of the old paperbark which is nearby.
Reminds me of the old Australian song by Marion Sinclair, 1932:
Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree
Merry merry king of the bush is he
Laugh, kookaburra, laugh, kookaburra
Gay your life must be!
