kookaburra fun

We caught a kookaburra this morning! It was in our yard and we got him. Boy did he make a fuss, squawking and flapping about. He looked like this.

Unfortunately, Neil heard all the noise and came to investigate. He made us let it go.

Never mind, we were excited about it for ages afterwards. We finally caught one, amazing. Sorry there is no photographic record of our hunting prowess - but you can imagine two excited Dales with their mouths full of feathers... that was us!


  1. That's pretty awesome, girls! Birdies are not easy to catch! Nice work!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  2. Oooh, I almost got a birdie once!! Musta been loads of fun!

  3. Girldales tend to be the faster hunters. I do hope the kookaburra wasn't injured.

  4. No, he flew off after Neil stopped us. He was pretty fierce and a bit hard to pin down, what with all the flapping and the big beak.

  5. almost got a birdie once!! Musta been loads of fun!
