I’m feeling adventurous today so I’m going to try something new.
This video upload will hopefully be my first of many more to come. 🙂
Do you or your inner kids enjoy new experiences with birds and animals, or other kinds of wildlife? I sure do. These kinds of experiences make me smile inside. I treasure them!
This video shows two kookaburras, or as I prefer to say — “kookumburrows” just for fun. :).
Try saying kookumburrows out loud. It’s a great word to say!!
Anyway, on this video you’ll be able to hear me talking and see me interacting with these beautiful wild birds and another young gal. I’m a little silly, as usual, but hopefully you’ll enjoy the chatter as you admire these beautiful birds.
What do you think of that?
Have you ever seen kookaburras up close and personal like that?
How amazingly cool was that?!!
And here is a sound clip of what kookaburras sound like when they are “laughing”. It’s kinda weird! Be ready to hear a very very funny bird sound! They make this call every morning, and every evening. They can be very very very noisy birds!
So now you’ve seen a video of the kookaburras, and you’ve heard their laughing sound —
what do you think?
- Did you see their funny little feet and watch them jump jump jump?
- Did you see them shake their heads with a loud clack clack clack?
- Did you see the beautiful colors in their feathers?
- Did you see the interesting shape of their beaks?
- Would you ever call a kookaburra a “cheezit” ??!
- What would you call these kookumburrows?
- What was your favorite part of the video?
- Would you be brave enough to hand feed kookumburrows??
I’m quite aware that pure environmentalists would fuss at me for feeding wildlife but these birds live in a highly populated area and clearly have been closely interacting with people for a very long time, way before I ever met them. The people aren’t going to move out of the community, and neither will the birds, so to me, it’s a matter of everyone getting along when we share the same space.
And who doesn’t like the occasional cheesy treat?!
These moments — getting up close and personal with the incredible side of nature — make life exciting to me. I find these birds, and most animals, completely fascinating, to say the least. They warm my soul and spirit.
How do you feel when you spend time with animals?
I hope you and your inner little ones smile, laugh, and giggle while you watch silly ol’ me be a funny ol’ bird lady. 🙂
