My wife Sue and I are in Byron Bay, waiting out the Covid-19 lock-down until family and friends can join us. Shouldn’t be long now. We’ve attached a bird box to our garden palm tree, and it has attracted attention from kookaburras, parakeets and, would you believe, two ducks. Over time I’ll try to capture some of their visits.

Kooka waits below the bird box

Who will decide this is home? We want baby kookas!
