Who’s a pretty boy then? Baby Kookaburra in Haig Park

By 15 January 2013 7

baby kooka

Haig Park these days is home to rabbits and possums, but yesterday the Kelpie of Few Accomplishments and I encountered a baby kookaburra.

Despite being very fluffy it was still more than capable of flying when I tried to get closer for a better pic. No laugh however.

Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it in to images@the-riotact.com .

This is one of the top things to like about Canberra. Oh god, now I’m doing it.

Agreed re: birds (parrots!) being one of the best things about Canberra. Although, when I was asked recently what I thought was good about Canberra, I answered “low access barriers to participation in the life of the community” and got a funny look. I probably should have just mentioned parrots.

If there’s a better looking bird than the Kookaburra I’m yet to see it.

Nice one. Love the Canberra birds. Weirdly, I seem to see millions of parrots but hardly any kookas.
