photographing and learning about wildlife
This family of kookaburras visited my yard yesterday morning. The first three shots are of the youngster - you can tell it's a juvenile from the short beak, white marks on the wings and the fluffy white head. He hadn't quite found his voice yet and kept making these sick warbling sounds instead of the 'proper' kookaburra laugh. He was trying so hard!!!! : ) Shots 4&5 show Mum and Dad watching over him protectively from a nearby tree, and the last shot shows all three of them together on the fence.
