Very often, especially on cold nights, we will have a family of kookaburras all nestle together on the same branch in one of our eucalypts. Anywhere between two and four kookaburras gather at sunset, laugh their laugh, and snuggle up for the night.
Normally we could just make out their white bellies when we go out stargazing at night, but this evening, they arrived slightly earlier than usual, so I was able to take this photo.
I assume they have similar branches in other trees for those evenings they aren’t on this one, but we have not yet found their other sleeping spots, but I am sure they are close as our yard seems to be their territory, and of course, we can hear them telling us all that the sun is going down, and it is time for bed.
