These birds are regular visitors to our garden. In fact, I believe they live on our property although I haven’t actually seen their nest. They are constantly on the watch for worms and yesterday, with the warmth of the sun, skinks were out too. In fact, we saw a skink scurry across the paved driveway minus its tail. Perhaps it was almost prey for a kookaburra, or another large bird.
The kookaburras don’t fly off as I approach but do watch me carefully before deciding to move off to another tree.
