we have LOADS of these guys around our house, and i did work experience with a wildlife carer and helped feed a pair of them. we stayed at a lodge down by the river and had about 11 of them hanging around while we were cooking the bbq. its funny as when you throw them a sausage and they try to kill it by smacking it on the ground XD
whenever i trip over or do anything stupid outside they always start laughing at me. stupid birds XD
i also held a little sacred kingfisher at home once, coz i turned on the outside light and it frightened him. he was so cute but very angry, so i let him go and he flew back into the tree. before that when he was on the ground he tried to attack my cat, who ran away terrified XD

blue winged kookaburras are awesome, in the area i live in they arn't that common, but i was walking home from work once and saw one on a short lightpost, it was so still i thought it was a statue (i can do many bird calls) so i started calling to it like a baby bird, then a chicken, a budgie then a lame kookaburra laugh and it all of a sudden started laughing at me....scared the shit out of me cos i seriously thought it was a statue lol. they dont sound the same as the laughing kookaburra however, so i bet thats why he laughed at me :)

to teda viděla - když jsme byly na parníku na přehradě :D

a malý detail - Kookaburra neznamená ledňáček, pokud já vím :D to jsou jen ledňáci, co žijí v Austrálii a blízkých oblastech :D ale jak Kookaburra tak náš ledňáček jsou ,,kingfisher", tedy ledňáček :D

a moc hezká fotka, zapomněla jsem, že máš tolik australských snímků v galerce :giggle:
