Kookaburras Cropped Image

There is nothing quite so lovely as the sound of kookaburras laughing in the trees.  We don’t hear them very often, I guess because they don’t have much to say.  But when they do, it’s precious.  I always find myself standing still and listening. 

We are very blessed to have such wonderful birdlife close by.  I was outside this morning and the Murray Mapgies were singing their little song.  I wish I could share that with you but I’m not so technologically advanced. 

I used to work in a bank, that was situated right smack dab on the banks of the Murray River, surrounded by big gum trees.  A little kookaburra family lived nearby, and we would hear them often, chattering away. 

It has always been one of my favourite sounds.

Till tomorrow,



  1. Love your wildlife quilts. I also really enjoy the warbling of magpies - joined with the kookaburras they make a lovely choir, lol.

  2. Gorgeous quilt! We have a little kookaburra who sits out in the gum tree in the backyard every morning. Don't hear him too often though!
