We had a lovely visit today. Just hanging out in the living room, doing the usual - preparing some juice for Sheena, and a lovely Kookaburra arrived on our patio. It was extreamely confident, and was looking at us as if to say, "I see that you see me, and aren't I stunning". As I was running around taking about 100 photos, ANOTHER Kookaburra pirched itself alongside Kooky #1. I am sure there was nesting going on, because they kept on looking up at our eaves. A magpie flew by, and one of them chased it off so we were left with one again. The remaining one (who I think was the girl, because it had pretty blue feathers and was fluffier) then flew to a hole in one of the trees at the back of our house. It had a quick look, then sat on a nearby branch. I really hope we have a nest either on our roof, or in one of the trees. Watch this space for more wildlife updates! Koala's welcome, but no snakes allowed.
