New Day Calls
22nd November 2011
First call in Australian bush, some time before the first hint of light at the night's end made by Kookaburra
A very accurate alarm clock that wakes up to the beginning of the new day.
*4th May 2012
We found rhythm of the typical day we observed so distinct in the Northern Territory to be far more varied in New South Wales and Tasmania. That would go also the Kookaburra’s first light call activities so peculiar in the NT and Kimberley. This species is also easier to spot and come by in NSW (the Blue-Winged Kookaburra). In any case it was very nice to hear them again and a truly friendly welcome! – It refreshed all our memories from NT soon after we landed in Australia again. Calls of Kookaburras in the North and East/South-East vary a little but they maintain the same character.
Joined by another regulars like Blue-faced Honeyeater Its calls follow shortly afterwards.

no Flight of a bird, no Sound of a river, no cloud in the Sky
no shutter release .. is for the second time ..
Only the Dreaming remains
