Dave!! This is THE kookaburra! Maybe it’s something about being named ‘Murray‘?
In Blackdown 2 weeks ago, our Murray was nursing a nice little Tasmanian triple brie on a biscuit, moving it towards his face, and kooka swept in and speared through the brie. Then he had to sit on a log and tap his beak enough times for it to all fall off and be gobbled. We then developed hand-sheilding techniques to get food to our mouths before he moved on to the next campers.
This shot was the morning after, eyeing off our friends cooking sausages. Kooka is an old hand at this gig!
