baby kookaburra...

Posted by Gemma Wiseman (Melbourne, Australia) on 6 December 2015 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

This is a baby kookaburra. Just a couple of days ago, his parents took him on his first flight. The celebratory joy, marked by constant laughing from the parents, was an amazing experience to behold. The baby has a shorter beak than the mature kookaburras and, as yet, there is no colour on the wings.

Such a lovely young one. A fine milestone on his/her journey.
