Good capture, great looking bird.

What an interesting-looking fellow. How cool to catch him. So...does it get its name for the way it looks, or the way it sounds? ;^)

That is one great looking bird and he does look like our Kingfisher. Wonderful catch.

I like this bird. It kind of reminds me of the Belted Kingfisher here in North America.

now THAT is a bird with character. the expression in that eye looks almost human.

Never saw one before, only heard a song about them. He's a fine looking thing.

So that's what one looks like! Looks like the fence is well used by the birds.

I always wondered what a kookabura looked like. Thanks for the picture. Interesting bird.
bandito13-Mar-2005 01:16
So THAT's what a kookabura is? You hear the names, but have no idea what they are. Big snout on that sucker, huh? Nice catch.
Guest 13-Mar-2005 01:00
Very nice shot, brings me back good memories from Australia
Lee Kindness12-Mar-2005 23:54
An image to attach to the name! Yeah, what a head!
Guest 12-Mar-2005 23:53
what a cool shot..
dazedgonebye12-Mar-2005 23:20
Is it just me, or does that bird have an unusually large head, as a species I mean?
Nice capture.
