When I was walking to the supermarket this morning, I happened to hear a rather uncommon but strangely familiar bird call.

I looked in the direction of the sound, and lo! it was a kookaburra on the antenna of the house opposite mine.

This is pretty rare. Whilst I have read that kookaburras are occasionally seen along the Maribyrnong valley, this is the first time I have ever sighted one in my suburb – or indeed in greater Melbourne (with the one exception of the golf course at Fairfield about 12 years ago).

And here is the proof.
