Gorgeous Kookaburras

Don't you just love these birds. They look so fluffy and cuddly. And to hear the noise they make, they actually sound like a load of monkeys. We have quite a few in the bush around us and love to hear them chatter away.

And not forgetting the nursery rhyme about them.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree.
Merry, merry king of the bush is he.Laugh, Kookaburra,
Laugh, Kookaburra, Laugh.
How gay your life must be.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Eating all the gumdrops he can see.
Stop, Kookaburra,Stop, Kookaburra,
Leave some there for me.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Counting all the monkeys he can see.
Wait, Kookaburra.Stop, Kookaburra.
That's not a monkey, that's me!
