gay your life must be"

So that's what a kookaburra looks like - I've never known what they were. Now the words to that song make sense - thanks!

That brings back memories. I remember singing that song in the 1st grade.



Love the shots Rodney.

Thankyou Everyone .

You can hear the kookaburra's laugh here - http://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/...ovaguineae.mp3

The 2 Kookaburras above sounded just like this.

That's a laugh! I had never heard the song, but my wife knew it, they sang it in school when she was a child!
