Disrupted

I have not posted birds for a while for many different reasons. In fact, this is the first time in months I am out photographing urban wildlife. While this laughing kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae) is watching for prey, a noisy miner (Manorina melanocephala)—they are annoyingly territorial by nature—squeaks and swoops to chase it away. But the kookaburra confidently stands still, at least, until the miner backs off. Then it moves to another spot to catch some caterpillas for the meal. Good on ya!
