The Laughing ball of Gorgeousness

We went for a lovely drive the other day just to get out and about. The town we visited is quite small and we decided to go for a stroll around the various streets -basically because I love looking at old houses and gardens. We decided to cut across a block, and down a lane and then we spotted a Kookaburra just sitting on a fence, not in the least worried about 3 nattering humans walking towards him. Well, 2 nattering humans and 1 blithering human because she had spotted the bird and was in awe because she had never got that close before!
The kookaburra laugh always makes me smile and I think they are so cute. It tolerated me oohing and aaahing like a kid. Hubby rolled his eyes and kept walking. Finally I got too close and off  he flew but my day was made, and spent the rest of the walk grinning like an idiot!

  1. Kookaburras sound so exotic to the likes of us Brits! My kids sing the "Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree" song at school, I was taught it at school too! xxx
