CommentWhen a kookaburra plunges into the grass around our place I always take a keen interest in seeing what hapless creature is on the menu. The range of food items is surprisingly diverse and includes worms, insects, yabbies, reptiles, rats and mice. I have also seen our kookaburras swallow Blackbird fledglings and even a Ring-tailed Possum!
