Thursday morning ...
It has been soggy around here, our yard squelches and I would know, I walked out there to get photos of another soggy looking thing.
Actually, I think he was beyond soggy, more like drowned rat.
There he was trying to dry off a little while it wasn't raining and our resident Willy Wagtail was harassing him like crazy.
Don't you just feel a bit sorry for this fellow.
It actually surprises me that kookaburras don't seem to fight back in any way. Maybe they figure that if they ignore a pesky willy wagtail that it will get bored and go away.
It worked today, mind you that might have been my presence. Earlier I had seen this fellow (or another) chased away. It was just as I went to take a photo.
Another thing that surprised me was how soggy this fellow looked but then I guess, he isn't a duck. Actually, Mr Sparky made a comment about kookaburras and cyclones, about how they don't seem to go away when one is coming, so they must be pretty hardy birds. Then I thought about this one a few years ago, yep they are hardy birds.
Sorry Mr Kookaburra, I think you are stuck with being soggy for a while.
