Day 62 – Bird or Monkey?

I was out for a night drive this evening when I saw the Kookaburra perched on a street sign. I shot this out of my truck window and only had one chance, as he flew into a neighboring tree directly after. Since that pic just doesn’t do this amazing bird (which is the largest of the king fisher species) justice, I’ve included a picture I took from another day’s hike. Kookaburras are known Australia wide for their uncannily loud, hysterical laugh…which actually sounds like monkeys to me. This is often the first thing you hear at our house at the first trace of daylight, around 4 am…and I love it.
