I had the pleasure of watching a laughing kookaburra feeding its offspring this afternoon as I was walking to the shops this afternoon. I heard a kookaburra chuckling and located it sitting on some powerlines above a termite nest in a treefork holding a number of insects in its bill. The termite nest had a neat hole drilled into it. I moved away from the nest to allow the adult to approach its nest - it flew laterally to a branch 20 metres from the nest, chuckled again [possibly to get the young ready to receive the tucker] and then flew to the nest, inserted its head and then flew off a few seconds later.

Regards, Laurie.
