Recently a family of Kookaburra’s moved into the neighborhood, maybe driven by the extraordinary weather and lack of food in their usual habitat. There have been so few insects in the local wild places. At first they were laughing a lot, as Kooki’s do, and hanging out for a feed. Wherever I went in the garden there they would be, looking at me, sometimes laughing, sometimes ‘asking’ for food – in their way. One day all three came to the balcony and sat for a few pictures.
