Friendly Kookaburra

Friendly Kookaburra

Every morning this friendly kookaburra would come and sit on our balcony waiting for treats. I was really surprised at how large his head was, and he was very similar to our kingfisher but much larger.

Is this a juvenile bird? Like you said, it looks like his body hasn't had time to catch up with his head yet ! Great close -up !

I think he's full grown Flcrazy, they eat lizards etc, which they catch with that hefty beak and then use their neck to flick it, bit like a thrush with a snail.
