K – Kookaburra and Kangaroo Paw

Kookaburras often sit on the fence between me and my neighbours. They have a fantastic call which is where they get their nickname ‘laughing kookaburra‘ or ‘laughing jackass’. Make sure you check out their call from one of the links. They are actually kingfishers and were introduced to Tasmania, originally they were only found on the eastern seaboard.


Kangaroo Paw

Another plant from touring Western Australia is the Kangaroo Paw. I have the black and yellow version growing in my backyard but I think I might have cut it back too far as it hasn’t flowered for a couple of years.
