Kookaburra catches a meal - Allora 24/12/11

Laughing Kookaburra

I noticed this Kookaburra while at the Allora Cemetery on the 24/12/11.  It had a recent catch, which I think was a Common Myna, as the nearby ones seemed rather upset!!  The Kookaburra landed in a nearby tree, but not for long, it took off with its prize.  I had the camera with me, as most times when I visit the cemetery, I often see some lovely birds.  We have seen Eastern Rosellas here in the past.  J.G.
