Kookaburra must be the bird everyone associates with Australia - it has to be one of the "must see" species there. This individual posed in fading light during a short walk in King's Park, Perth, Western Australia.

For more about the birds I saw in WA during August / September 2012 see this page.

I used the Slater guide to identify the birds I saw in Australia. It worked quite well but gave the impression of possibly being a little dated.
