I have just returned from a lecture on Pompeii at Museum Victoria and,
while walking through Exhibition Gardens, saw a kookaburra perched in a
tree near the ornamental pond.

When I saw it on my way to the Museum it was responding quite angrily to
the unwanted attention of a magpie lark.  I walked past the same tree on my
way back and it was perched on the same branch.  Its bill was muddy,
suggesting that it had been foraging in the pond.

I believe kookaburras are resident at the Botanic Gardens and I'm pretty
sure I saw one fly past my building on the edge of the CBD, but I don't
know if they are regular visitors to Exhibition Gardens.
