Guuguuburra ~ the sound of human laughter
"Kookaburra" was taken from the Wiradjuri word that describes the bird's call. Kookaburra's job is to signal the sky gods to light the sun each morning. It's said that if you're alone when you hear a Kooka, it means someone is missing you and you should go and be with loved ones. If a Kooka laughs at a gathering, it's a reminder to appreciate those you think of with love.
They also kill snek.
this pic is from April, 2013, with a bit of fake-HD business applied

a possum is making it's possumy noise. it's hilarious, esp for people who are in their beds in an old house and have never heard it before. There was one in the wall, the first night here. Scared the bejingoes out of this little sceptic!
this noise
what an amazing evolutionary step. you can see how that would be attractive to someone.

here is a red-rump parrot. it has it's very own genus. mono. typic.
well done, little guy! he's eating capeweed - a weed that drives lawn-people around here completely spare. personally, i'd rather have parrots than lawn-people but capeweed does have a lot of downsides - that's probably why it's known as a weed. Bugger. i'd still much rather have parrots.
his lady love was in attendance but i grabbed this snap as i was leaving one car to get into another and so missed getting a pic of her. meh, she's a little dull, they say ;)'

some more Rupert, the former St. Kilda lad. He went to Europe and didn't come back until after his wife died. Which is fair enough.

"This song was written in response to the mining on Groote Eylandt, and in particular the battle fought by the community, which saw the NT government place a total ban on seabed mining around Groote Eylandt in 2013, respecting the concerns of traditional owners about the destruction of the seabed and cultural songlines. I’m passionate about protecting this earth and everything living on it. Ngardegujenama talks about we all come from the sea and how it’s our duty to protect and cherish her, and the pain we cause when we don’t. The song is an anthem and a reminder to care for this beautiful country. We are also caretakers of the sea.
lyrics
Ngogudlangwa
enena Angalya
(We all belong to this land)

Ngogudlangwa
memena makarda
(We all belong to this sea)

Ngarrekwujenama
nganyang arndirra
(My heart is hurting)

Ena angalya
(This is my home)
Merrowiya Mena
(this land is bleeding)"

**_“In the dinosaur stakes, Australia was dealt a poor hand for a number of reasons. Firstly, when dinosaurs were roamed the earth, there were few places where the right kinds of rocks were being deposited. Dinosaurs tend to be preserved in sediments laid down by rivers and lakes. During the reign of the dinosaurs most of Australia was covered by a shallow sea.
Secondly, since the age of dinosaurs, there has not been much mountain-building in Australia. If land is lifted up and eroded back, it’s possible to see into the rock beds and find the fossils inside. This has happened in a number of the worlds famous dinosaur deposits elsewhere in the world but not here in Australia.
Lastly, compared to many other places in the world, Australia has very few palaeontologists looking for fossils and a very large area to cover. This is slowly changing and the recent increase in dinosaur fossil finds is a result of more palaeontologists getting out and digging around.” This site has been archived _(ABC) **
sooo not that many finds after all, huh.

psyching up for... show more
