Kookaburras are large kingfishes with loud laughing calls and they feed mainly on reptiles. This young one is a resident in my mother’s garden in Sydney. It showed incredible patience and stillness while waiting for an unsuspecting lizard to slither into view, the only movement a sudden swivel of the head.

    Beautiful birds. I brought some paintings back from Australia after my visit there some years ago…

      I never tire of the kookaburras … though at times their cry is raucous and they are very aggressive to other birds in their territory and brutal with their prey … but they are also beautiful and unique.
