Covered in bedding
This Kookaburra obviously got out of bed quickly, it's covered in White-ants. Kookaburras incubate their two to four pure white eggs in hollow tree trunks or in excavated termite nests. Both adults incubate for a period of 25 days. The young leave the nest 30 days after hatching, but the parents continue to feed them for another 40 days. Lens aperture f/4.5, shutter speed 1/80sec, focal length 14mm, ISO 400.

    Guess I could live without the ants, but what an absolutely adorable bird! Terrific detail, Chris - so real I'd love to squeeze it (well, if it weren't for those ants)!

I agree with you both, they are cute characters, sometimes I get a little pat in, mostly on the legs!!

No, it didn't bite, it knows who feeds it. Thanks for taking the time to look.

What a little sweetie, Chris! Sorry to see him/her being overrun with ants ~ hope he could pick/shake them off easily.
Do stores in Australia sell Kookaburra dolls like teddy bears? Seems like the perfect cuddle-toy for a child.
