Can You Spot the Kookaburra? by onewing

Can You Spot the Kookaburra?

I took this yesterday morning through our dining room window.

It suddenly started to pour with rain and a kookaburra sat on one of our garden chairs in the hope of being fed. Can you spot him? I did feed him but not until the rain stopped. He was very patient.

It isn't the clearest of photos because it was taken through the plantation shutters and also fly screen on the window. The shade cloth above the patio made it darker too. Can you see the rain on the beams?

After the rain it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day.
Ahh, yes 👍quite big ...

What a privilege to see this bird so close!!

I love him! I remember the first time I saw one and heard its laugh. It was up by the trig point near Barrenjoey Lighthouse above Palm Beach, Northern Sydney. I can still see him now - such a treat.

I can see him perched on the backrest. And I can see the raindrops, too. So sad to see life through the sun screen - gives the feeling of lockdown perfectly.

I was first drawn to the raindrops on the beams and I did see the bird but it didn't register that that could be something unusual! Good shot- even through the screens!

Tiny drops of reflection on the beams! You have a kookaburra friend? Perhaps you can talk to him!

So sorry for the group reply, but I have had such a busy day. I thought while I was self isolating that I would have more free time, but it hasn't worked out that way so far.

The kookaburra is a regular visitor and we call him Squawk because usually when he turns up that is what he says. He has a lady friend who we call Onewing because she has a bit of a floppy wing. It doesn't seem to bother her and she can fly okay but must have injured it when she was young. They have both been visiting for a few years and we feed them occasionally with raw mince. They turn up with new babies each year too but as the babies grow they move on and Onewing and Squawk remain. They are both very tame with me, but don't like other people around.
April 6th, 2020  
Oh yes, I see him. I like your little titbit about Squawk and Onewing.
April 7th, 2020  
Yes... fav
April 7th, 2020  
There he is ....
