Warning – this post may be squeamish for some readers.
For the second year running, a pair of kookaburras have brought their young to show us, although there is only one baby this time around.
A few days ago I heard the baby kookaburra begging for food in the gum tree by the house and I went out to watch. One of the parents killed a mouse somewhere and brought it to the baby for its evening meal.
The young kookie looked quite happy about it!
Then it sat there on the branch for a minute or so juggling the mouse around in its beak.Then all of a sudden, in one quick movement, down it went!
The young bird seemed quite satisfied.
And then started begging for food again! 😀
