While sitting at the computer I suddenly saw my favourite bird through the window.It is a laughing Kookaburra. It belongs to the Kingfisher family.
Its call sounds like laughter. It is a meat eater. It is often seen eating lizards and snakes. It picks them up in its strong beak and beats them to death on a branch. It can also pinch your steak off the BBQ or your plate.
It was so obliging to turn around to show you its tail. I can't believe how clear the shots turned out considering they were taken through the glass window.
Off it goes but I didn't have the camera set for movement...still learning.
