"Kookaburra sits in the old Gum Tree...merry merry king of the bush is he..." we learnt this song as kids, but the sound of ten of these outside your window at 5am sounds more like the cawing of ravens (crows to us)...I'm glad it is they who eat most of the red bellied balck snakes... have a feeling they are eyeing us off of late... Posted by Picasa

Don't know why but the word 'kookaburra' has a beautiful ring to it. I shall be saying it to myself all day and hoping they feast well on snakes
