Kookaburra Alights on a fence post
Palm Beach (where the Aussie soap Home and Away is filmed) December 2014. When this kookaburra landed practically in front of me as I was walking up to the Barrenjoey Head Lighthouse it seemed as though it was begging me to take its photo.
Kookaburras are terrestrial tree kingfishers of the genus Dacelo native to Australia and New Guinea, which grow to between 28–42 cm in length and weigh around 300 g. The name is a loanword from Wiradjuri guuguubarra, onomatopoeic of its call. Wikipedia
