Kookaburra pair swaying in the wind

Kookaburras have an endearing habit of swaying back and forth when sitting on a branch. Today a pair sat cosily together on a branch, chewing the breeze. It’s soothing to watch their synchronised swaying.

For a giggle, here’s a short extract from the above video showing my favourite bit:

    Thanks for sharing. Love the video.

  3. Thanks Sue and Pamela! I’m thinking it’d be a good video to play in a loop on the television at a dinner party. People can watch it and chill out during breaks in conversation!
