Very Strange

Postby GypsyLady » Sun Oct 02, 2011 8:18 pm

Heard a strange barking sound outside the camp the other day, a bit like a dog.

Looked out the door to find that the sound was coming from up in the tree.....grabbed my camera and headed out and was quite stunned to see this bird making the sound.

Could not believe it, would not have believed it had I not seen it with my own eyes.

Father-in-law tells me that its a ''Northern Kooky'',,,,,,has the blue wings that the Southern ones don't have.

As far as sounding like a ''dog''.....He asks.......What had you been drinking the night before .......lol :beer

Yes I know what it is Rosco which is why I was extremely surprised to hear it make such a strange noise.

They do have the blue tipped Kookas at home but the blue is not as intense. See attached pic taken which I took at Aratula last year.

The guy in the camp next to me reckons the Kooka knocked his cat out of the tree, he reckons they have a nest there but I am not convinced.

Maybe it's a noise they make when trying to protect their young ones if there was a nest in the tree???

A mate of ours heard what was like someone screaming one night on his property, so he ventured out to find two foxes at his chook house (older fox outside & baby fox had squeezed under the fence) and the rooster was the one screaming.....weird but must be their way of making someone aware of the danger....he saved all the hens though as when our mate came outside he hunted the foxes away.

Funny thing PJ...my son said similar, he said that maybe the Kooka had a frog in his throat.....LOLOL

Even more strange was the fact that I heard the same noise again earlier this morning.

Yeah Rosco...shame on you thinking that a good born and bred aussie would not know what a Kookaburra was.....shame....shame.
