it is similar to the kingfisher but a lot larger and these birds have a sinister streak..
although they are native to australia they are not native to western australia and the rogue is the culprit in sending our little wren population into serious decline .
they are meat eaters and swoop on their prey from a tree where they are cleverly camouflaged .
when talking to a local ranger he had autopsied one which had 10 blue wrens in its belly!..
so you see the only kookas i like are the little camping stove that i had to use for breakfast on sunday as we had an ill timed power cut and i even had to use a camping kettle with a little whistle to make a morning cuppa..
then there is the lovely little ko0kaburra cinema [outdoor] that runs in a little community in the perth hills..
imagine sitting under the milky way[we are directly under it]and watching the movie AUSTRALIA in the evening air and being served refreshments from the local volunteer fire brigades ahh bliss...
a note at the bottom of the program "please generously support these tireless guardians of our hills lifestyle"..
i say hear hear and aren't these little communities wonderful?
