Bit busy to blog (bb2b).
But here’s a Kookaburra
that lurks around our frog pond
looking for tasty treats
and having quick dips.
I’ll be back soon.

Gorgeous 🙂 he or she had just had a bath in the frog pond and was fluffing up in the sun.

Enjoy your time off. I would love to have a kookaburra in my garden, a great name for a stylish bird!
You make my brain works hard, I tried to figure out what was bb2b (be back to ?) and then understood that it is for bit busy to blog…sups (see you pretty soon)!

I don’t know why I put that there – haha – it is my equivalent of BWO (blogging without obligation) which some people have on their blogs. The kookaburra is very stylish and has an amazing birdcall which sounds like someone laughing hysterically.

laughing hysterically! even better!

Ben, the bird is also known as the Laughing Kookaburra and you can hear the call on this website (under laughing kookaburra) – it’s worth a listen http://birdsinbackyards.net/feature/top-40-bird-songs.cfm

Now you have given me an idea for our second Pompi story (which I’m a bit stuck on the ending) – a laughing kookaburra has a bit of fun with Pompadour – haha.

I just finish laughing with the kookaburra, it is contagious listening to him, great laughing therapy to start the day!
Thank you Gabe for this precious link.
great idea for Pompi!

He is a gorgeous little guy. How fortunate you are to have him visit even if he is after your frogs (little rascal).

He is gorgeous 😉 I think he is more likely to be after the fish than the frogs, but I’m not sure.
