    We get kookaburras in the trees out the front of our place some mornings, but I've never been able to get a photo (yet).

    The following were taken with a film SLR (before it came to grief) travelling with a mate and his family, plus another couple, from Broome to Kununurra and back.

    Here's a shot of my little mate who comes to visit me at least every second night on dusk for a free rat. He knows I've been trapping them again, 3 in 2 nights. Keeps him and his girlfriend happy. :) He's not phased by me walking right up to him at all.

    Dinner time fella!

    Caught this one overnight, was in the trap when I got up for work at 2am. If my barking owls come back tonight, this one'll be dinner.

    I put them on top of my daughter's netball post and they come and take them. Working on getting them to take them from my hand. A mate of mine regularly hand feeds owls.

    He's back... Just got another photo of him, need to resize it for upload... awesome creature... the silent flight of owls can be quite startling in the pitch blackness... He really sneaks up on me.

    @Yellowtail Saw these pics of a natural mutation of pied Yellow-tail Black Cockatoos and thought of you. Nice looking critters.

    I quite honestly prefer pied red tails other pied yellow tails, both are neat though.

    Thanks for that, I am aware of one seen frequently in the ACT but apparently there have been others.
