Guess who came to dinner

One of the best things about summer and daylight saving is to be able to sit outside of a night, enjoy the light nights and have dinner in the cool of the evening which is what we try to do most nights and sometimes we are have an extra guest.



I am not sure if he was eyeing off the food on my plate or the wine in my glass! He - in saying that it could be a she - now comes and joins us most nights just sitting about the same distance away and just looks from plate to glass, stays a while and flies off.

We are so lucky to have such a tame and well-mannered dinner guest.

What a very polite guest,isn't it nice when we can get to enjoy nature so close while relaxing in our own back yards :) Barb.

Very well-mannered - on Dangar Island we had a kookaburra that was not nearly so polite! Would attempt to snatch food off the table no matter how much we yelled and flailed.

we've had a very wet and bedraggled looking one hanging round. A client of mine used to feed them every afternoon. Around 4 they were lined up on her patio and she would feed each one before she would have her dinner. Once I actually forgot to get the food ready for her to feed them and one kookie flew into the kitchen and sat on the fridge glaring at me. That wasn't too bad but when the butcherbird flew in and sat on the cupboard looking at me I got a bit freaked out. Touches of Hitchcocks The Birds.
