 Just a bit of bird behaviour,

This morning the "garden" family of kookaburras (usually 4 birds) brought the 
lastest addition to a huge Black Bean tree  (Castanospermum australe) near my 
back gate.

The adults spent most of the early morning in full voice and the nearby family 
group were equally vocal. During the mid morning alarm calls sounded & one of 
neighbouring birds must have got too close as it was severely dealt with & sent 
on its way, another  noisy few minutes resulted.

Was that bird just curious or did it have something else on its mind?

The garden group was vocal most of the day & seemed to be on alert, flying back 
& forth over the nearby Park.

Later in the afternoon the fledgling was seen dealing with a Blue tongue lizard 
about 12 cms long. It took time but it did manage to finish its evening meal.

Hope these birds settle down tomorrow.

Christmas cheers to all

Janet.... from Alstonville on the lovely North coast of NSW
