At Woodland Park Zoo on last Tuesday, and I loved the lighting on this bird. I believe a Kookaburra.
Poor thing. What's it doing way over there.

Beautiful. I love the Kookaburra - ever since I did a project on Australian wildlife in primary school! And that wasn't yesterday!

@terryliv Well, he was in our zoo here. I thought the PAINTED background was lovely as a backdrop, but I imagine he misses his real habitat.

Interestingly, he is quite a bit darker than the native ones. Wonder if he has developed that over time as a way of retaining heat.

A beautiful image and I love the backdrop.

He's so unusual looking, at least to me. Great shot!

Great capture, details and light

Great shot! I want to sing the Kookaburra song from Girl Scouts! Now I know what they look like

@harbie thanks, it was fun to read about these birds from someone who actually lives with them! As a child I used to sing the song also, but have never seen a Kookaburra in person until last week at our Zoo.
