If you copy/paste vimeo.com/user11272960​/ (external link) into the address bar you can watch without logging in .. Though you might be sorry you did... Good Grief :eek:

Fantastic behavior capture Dave :!:

joayne,

Thank you for correcting the link from Choderboys post as for me his link did not work at all. I was surprised the video was constantly in the same place as the camera position never changed, obviously camera was on a tripod. I was not sorry I watched this!!!

Yes, of course, and that’s what I did but it says I have to log in to watch.

Levina I never saw anything about needing to "log in"

Huh... I didn't have to log in
?


and, of course you know how :rolleyes:  :p

Well, it’s strange as e.g. I could watch the Ospreys on the nest. But for the Kookaburra and his rat I need to log in. Go figure.


For joayne's post I did not need to log in, all I had to do was click on her link and it worked fine!

Speaking of Kookaburras...
I had been watching a local pair of Osprey for a couple of hours. For the last approx 30 minutes I was hearing an intermittent noise.
There would be 2 or 3 noises, then nothing for up to a minute, and so on.
Once I had finished with the Osprey, I went to investigate.
I found this Kooka, pulverising a Rat. For another 20 minutes it kept pulverising, swinging the Rat around and smashing it against the tree branch 2 or 3 times, then a rest.
Obviously satisfied with it's work, eventually the Kooka started swallowing the Rat, head first. This took about another 10 minutes as the Rat slowly disappeared. The Kooka flew off, with the tail still hanging out of t's bill.

Still speaking of Kookaburras, it's the right time of year to find young ones.
This one probably hatched around mid November.
Lower bill is dark, that will lighten with time. Bill is also shorter than an adults.
Plumage differences are subtle but overall quite a different looking bird.

Thanks for assistance regards Vimeo video link of the Kooka and Rat.
I logged out of Vimeo after getting this link, works for me logged out.

https://vimeo.com/7259​88312 (external link)

Regarding size, the Laughing Kookaburra is the largest of the World's Kingfishers.
In ornithology terms it ranges from large to very large.
It's length and height is greater than a Rock dove (Pigeon) but a similar weight.

Very nice Dave
Have to admit I don't recall seeing a juvenile one.
Never been around nesting areas. I wonder how far they wander at that age?
