Kookaburra! What a beautiful, unique bird!
I’m feeling adventurous today so I’m going to try something new.
This video upload will hopefully be my first of many more to come. :)
Do you or your inner kids enjoy new experiences with birds and animals, or other kinds of wildlife? I sure do. These kinds of experiences make me smile inside. I treasure them!
This video shows two kookaburras, or as I prefer to say — “kookumburrows” just for fun. :). Try saying kookumburrows out loud. It’s a great word to say!!
Anyway, on this video you’ll be able to hear me talking and see me interacting with these beautiful wild birds and another young gal. I’m a little silly, as usual, but hopefully you’ll enjoy the chatter as you admire these beautiful birds.
Oops. Ok, I have uploaded the video as a separate blog post instead of being able to insert it here. Have a peek here!
Feeding kookumburrows: http://youtu.be/OslKkP_60Sc
See the beautiful colors on the kookaburra?
What do you think of that?
Have you ever seen kookaburras up close and personal like that?
How amazingly cool was that?!!
- Did you see their funny little feet and watch them jump jump jump?
- Did you see them shake their heads with a loud clack clack clack?
- Did you see the beautiful colors in their feathers?
- Did you see the interesting shape of their beaks?
- Would you ever call a kookaburra a “cheezit” ??!
- What would you call these kookumburrows?
- What was your favorite part of the video?
- Would you be brave enough to hand feed kookumburrows??
I’m quite aware that pure environmentalists would fuss at me for feeding wildlife but these birds live in a highly populated area and clearly have been closely interacting with people for a very long time, way before I ever met them. The people aren’t going to move out of the community, and neither will the birds, so to me, it’s a matter of everyone getting along when we share the same space. And who doesn’t like the occasional cheesy treat?!
These moments — getting up close and personal with the incredible side of nature — make life exciting to me. I find these birds, and most animals, completely fascinating, to say the least. They warm my soul and spirit.
How do you feel when you spend time with animals?
I hope you and your inner little ones smile, laugh, and giggle while you watch silly ol’ me be a funny ol’ bird lady. :)
