Australian Laughing Kookaburra

We have three kookaburras living on our property and many others that visit us or our neighbour’s property. I love that I can get quite close to them, talk to them and watch them. They are lovely birds.

This one was in my neighbour’s yard a few days ago and watched me as I moved around taking shots of it.  It was late afternoon and I love how the sun caught a glint in its eye.

  3. Hi Kathie –

    I wanted to see why Laughing was in the name for the birds! Found this youtube video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0ZbykXlg6Q

    Thanks for more great photos.
