Day 166/366

This photo is probably a case of spot the kookaburra!  

At work today I decided to go out for lunch.
I needed to clear my head.
Prince Alfred Park was in full sunshine and I sat on a park bench with my sandwich and paper back. 
A kookaburra came and sat on the bench next to mine.
When a fire engine or two drove by with the sirens blaring, the kookaburra (joined now by a second kookaburra) became vocal and laughed along with the sirens.
When I was growing  up I was told that kookaburras only laugh when it's about to rain or if they have spotted a snake for their dinner.
Does today prove this theory wrong?

I only had my mobile telephone with me, and hence the sad photo result.


  1. I've never seen a real kookaburra! So glad you got to hear them sing ;)

    1. Oooo Laurie, kookaburras don't sing ... they really do laugh. Very loudly. But they are very friendly birds.

  2. That photo's OK SP. Better than none - Dave

    1. Thanks Dave,you're right...I look back at very poor snaps from the 60s & 70s but despite how bad they might be...they still bring back lovely memories.

  3. It's a good phone photo and you made the most of the photographic opportunity :) I have noticed that Kookaburras laugh before rain, but they also seem to take great glee in laughing very early in the morning when my hubby decides to go out fishing.

    1. I have to try and remember to take a point and shoot camera for these times.
