|I was sitting on the balcony of our holiday accommodation at Byron Bay on the NSW coast, taking in the breath taking scenery of the ocean and lighthouse, when this little Kookaburra paid me a visit.|
He sat there for a good 15 mins, either showing me his prise or offering me to share his lunch, I'm not sure :-)
Kookaburras are native to Australia and New Guinea and are best known for their unmistakable call, which is uncannily like loud, echoing human laughter — good-natured, if rather hysterical. They are generally not closely associated with water, and can be found in habitats ranging from humid forest to arid savanna, but also in suburban and residential areas near running water and where food can be searched for easily.
