The 'laughing jackass' (Kookaburra) may be synonymous with Australia but they are not seen all that often in urban areas, nor even in country areas as much as they used to be. So I was quite excited to find this pair sitting on the powerlines just across the road. One of them showed quite a bit of interest in that small hole in the pole. Surely he couldn't have been thinking of expanding it to a suitable size for a nest? Perhaps he was just looking for food. They charmed us with a burst of 'laughter' before flying off.
