I have to come back to Australia, SOON! Love your photos and your wonderful birds~
Thanks for visiting my site, it led me to yours. And I grew up in Canada and we sang the kukaburra song, too.
that bird song seems to have gotten around! tx for visiting
Your site (and you) are AWESOME!
YOur sweet! tx for visiting 😀
Very nice. Looks like a powerful head and beak, an adaptation for feeding on…? Also, I’m as fascinated by the wild and crazy common names as I am the critters themselves.
yes its a pretty cool name! tx for visitng
Your photo brings back childhood memories of singing about a kookaburra in an old gum tree, though I probably didn’t really have a clue then about what a kookaburra looked like. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photo.
I am surprised u sang that.. didn’t imagine it was a song that was sung OS.. perhapes you had an Australian for a teacher?
the ditty is ‘kookaburra sits in the old gum tree, merry merry king of the bush is he, laugh kookaburra, laugh kookaburra, gay your life must be! 😀
That is the same song. I think that lots of American kids sing it in school (or at least we did when I went to school).
