LOOK WHO JUST POPPED HIS HEAD OUT OF THE NEST!


As I couldn't climb up the ladder this year to take pictures inside the tree 🌲 I am not sure how many chicks there are. So happy to see these little cuties. Love ❤️ Chris

That's how I feel when I see them leave the nest, but in a nice way. Love Chris

Yes, it is Suzanne, I agree with you. Apparently Kookaburras only live about 15 years and we've had this pair here about 12 years. I'm hoping that the siblings will keep coming back when and if they mate. Love Chris

Thanks Didi, off to see the Physio again this afternoon. He is trying his hardest to get me to be in a 'comfortable' state. I don't want to have spinal surgery if I can help it. Love Chirs

We are certainly blessed downunder with an abundance of bird life in our backyard and reserve behind us. As I just mentioned to Lidia, I even saw a flock of black cockatoos (quite rare for here) they were awesome! Love Chris

Thanks Lidia, they are gorgeous aren't they? I saw a flock of black cockatoos on my early morning walk today - I managed to take a picture of 3 in a tree in someone's back yard! Love Chris

No I haven't been up the ladder this Spring to see how many were in the nest, so we are just waiting to see how many pop their heads out. They are the cutest little chicks too! Love Chris

Love to see the new additions each year, we have a couple high up in the gum trees. Can always hear them every morning, but only see them as they fly away. Sandra.

They wake us up at 5.00am (which is really 4.00 because of daylight saving time!!!!!!!!!!!) Love Chris

Love when you post these little babies. Hopefully you get some pictures when they start to fly. Hugs and Love Lynn

Thanks Lynn, you have to be right there when that happens and they don't get too far as the trees in the back reserve are a good 50-60 metres away and for the young chicks it's a long way at their age. Love Chris
