I remember being so excited to see a bunch of these guys at some place I stayed at in FNQ - until they all started up a symphony and I couldn't sleep for the racket! man, were they loud!
Hello Violet,we have a neighbourhood gang who sing/laugh at dawn - it is a rude awakening...Happy days
Oh Delwyn, your friendly kookaburra made me laugh, I may have heard that sound in movies and thought it to be from a funny furry monkey, not a beautiful feathered little bird!
hello delwyn! perhaps your little friend read the sign and was hoping to find a nice kookaburra apartment there at the lodge. steven
What a beautiful bird! Forgive my ignorance, but I don't think I have ever encountered this species before. Thanks for sharing.
He's so cute but what a voice. I can't imagine what it must be like when a bunch of them get together.
What a cute laugh he/she has!! :O)Thank you for this beauty!
I don't think I'd ever get tired of kookaburras, Delwyn. Quite magnificent birds.
Really glad you included the video sound. I've never heard one before and must confess it sounds a little like a monkey to me. Such fascinating birds I have to say.
Oh Delwyn, I had to turn the bird off before the finish - can't imagine him "laughing" in the morning outside my window! Is he sitting on an old gum tree?
Oh he is so cute and I had to laugh at his voice, I have never heard anything like it.....:-)Hugs
Barb, he is sitting in an old tree but I don't think it was a gum...Ellen - very loud...
Beautiful photo of my favourite bird. When I lived in North Queensland they always alerted me if there was a snake around. You are blessed to live in Noosa, there is so much wildlife returning to the area. I surfed as a teenager at Noosa when the only food available was pies from the pub - a bit different these days, huh? We slept in cars around by Little Cove, there was no accommodation! I still stay at Noosa about once a year but these days do so in a lot more comfort!
Hi Paulinehow nice to meet you...and I live at Little Cove right now...no sleeping in cars allowed around her any more.The park rangers check the vans at the National Park entry each morning....Your photos of New Zealand make me feel very nostalgic. I'm a Christchurch girl and my Beloved is from the Wairarapa It was not until the last ten years or so that we appreciated the natural beauty of New Zealand. Growing up there it always seemed such a backward and parochial place and we took the splendid diversity of geography and scenery for granted.Thanks for calling by...Happy days
I remember singing the little song about the kookaburra as a round in girl scouts but I never heard the laugh it refers to until now- thanks! Beautiful bird and great laugh!
What a cute little bird with a funny little laugh.

What a handsome fellow! He looks like he's posing for your picture, too! :)
egads! i'll bet that would get annoying after awhile
Smiling now, thank you.
how much fun-- I had no idea the Kookabura sounded like wild laughing- delightful!
oh!!!! thank you! beautiful photos, and the laughing video is awesome! i'm so happy now!:D
Awww, Delwyn, the Kookaburra is a cutie! I like his fluffy little head. :)Although, I do doubt the residents of Kookaburra Lodge get much rest if he's giggling like that all the time...LOLThanks for Sharing and You have a Happy Day too!Hugs :)Kelly
I remember singing the kookaburra song when I was a kid. Never realized how beautiful they are.
Gosh, thought I left a comment here...hope it wasn't unintentionally offensive!Aloha from Waikiki :) Comfort Spiral
I wonder how many of us where trying to remember the words to 'Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree' watching the video. The video really makes the whole post come alive doesn't it.
He's so cute and has such a happy little voice. Enthusiastic!
Oh he's lovely, and heres me who get excited over plain old Jenny wren. I'd love to see some of your Australian birds xJ
Aawww! such a cutie. l was taught to sing this song about a kookabura when I was in primary school. Have never seen this bird or its image before and is pleasantly surprised that it's such a lovely bird
LOL, who can beat that riotous celebration of life. A beautiful bird.
Hi Delwyn, I came over from Cheryl`s. Thank you for the bird`s picture! I know the song from Uncle Colin`s (Colin Pearce, lovely CD)but never saw one in my life! Cheryl told me about your new idea, please include me!
I'm in love with those beautiful birds.
I had no idea a Kookaburra was a bird. I thought it was a monkey or something like that.Nice photos!!!
