We had a special visitor today!
We've been hearing some kookaburras around lately, with their distinctive cackling laughter. But we haven't spotted any until I walked outside and saw this one, not in a gum tree, but our old lemon tree, a couple of metres from our back door.
He seemed very interested in watching me take photos of him.
It's not often we get to see them in our suburb, being so far from any national park. So this is a special treat. But I won't hold my breath waiting for a koala or a wombat to turn up on our doorstep.
