Kookaburra

You don’t often get to meet a kookaburra at such close quarters and with such a determined look on his face. I think this one is a baby. He arrived on our verandah one morning at breakfast and spent most of the day fending off other birds whilst he cooled his tail feathers in the bird bath. There’s definitely a card in the future waiting to have his face on it.

This guy might be a bit of a challenge to draw on a white artboard. He’ll just be an eye, a beak and a yellow bit stuck out at the back. Hmm, we’ll see.

Currawong

Native to Australasia Currawongs have the most wonderful song. Just look at that fantastic eye.
