…Because I know you’re sick of looking at spiders.
I know I am.
So how about an Australian icon – a kookaburra.
We share our backyard with many kookaburras.
We have to share the patio too!
(It would be nice if they ‘cleaned up’ after themselves.)
Our yard backs onto a bit of bush so the birds love to sit on our fence.
I suspect they prefer our yard to our many pet owning neighbours.
No we don’t usually feed them.
It might seem like a ‘nice’ thing to do for them but it just makes them dependent on humans and more vulnerable in the environment. Aside from the fact that kookaburras are carnivores.
However, (cover your ears….eyes…if you’re squirmish)
I did leave a dish…or three…of nice fat juicy silkworms out there for the birds.
So there you go…something more pleasant to look at while you wait for me to think up a homeschool related topic to post about. I’m open to suggestions.
Well off to the patio to ‘clean up’ after those kookaburras!!
