Laughing Kookaburra

Kookaburras are my favourite bird. I see them everywhere and often have them in close proximity when I’m out and about walking. I have come to think of them as my ‘spirit animal’. 

I snapped this bold little fella on a recent holiday.

This one flew right up to me as we pulled into a station on the Puffing Billy Railway.


In these photos, both birds had flown up to me and were less than a metre from where I was standing. We had ‘a moment’ and I looked them right in the eyes!

I have also previously written about kookaburras in my post “The Larrikin”. You can listen to the ‘laugh’ of the kookaburra HERE.
