Heard a noise coming from the sewing room area while having tea tonight. Look what I saw sitting on the swing seat frame outside of my sewing room. A cute little kookaburra. I guess it wanted to see what I had been sewing this afternoon. The noise was from the kookaburra fluttering at the sunroom door. Guess it could see it's reflection. DH rushed to get the camera while I stood guard. It has been at the door a couple of times before. Shirley

Thanks for the pictures, we have counted 17 different birds in our garden. Our birdbath is a joy to my invalid husband. We live in a busy suburb (on Lake Illawarra, New South Wales, Australia) with passing traffic but the birds don't seem to mind. At the moment we are watching a battle between a Little Wattle Bird and a New Holland Honeyeater, the wattle bird can be quite a bully at nesting times. I'm so glad we have time to smell the roses and enjoy Gods gifts...........Ann

I'll have to do a count of how many we have down here in Northern Tasmania. I t would be wonderful for your husband to watch them all. They are a joy to watch in the bird bath. My late MIL would have just loved to have seen them. Sometimes the bath is so crowded with little wrens etc. Yes it is lovely to have time to stop and smell the roses and watch the great wonders of the world. Shirley

Yes I was pleased to get the photo. I have quite a lot of video clips taken from my dinnig window of lots of kinds of birds in the bird bath. Have not seen the kookaburra in the bath yet, but have had 2 green parrots there at the same time. Shirley

He is a beauty Shirley - all of ours have flown the nest and off in the back reserve. We've had torrential rain for the past 2 days and I can hear them still laughing out there! Love Chris

P.S. Is that a Boronia bush or some form of Heath underneath him?

shirley124 by shirley124 18 Nov 2013

This is the 3rd time I've heard him out at the door. Could'nt get a photo before..Yes it is a pink boronia underneath him. Beautiful perfume. The rain would be a relief from the heat you have been having up there. Shirley
