young kockaburra

Hi there,
I am wondering if anybody can confirm sightings of kockaburras in Melbourne / Oakleigh area.
Is it possible ?

I presume you mean kookaburra.

Huntingdale golfcourse is close by and I have seen kookaburras there but it was many years ago.

So it is possible.

Hi there Koko, lots of Kookaburras here in Belgrave area... this one taken today in Sherbrooke forest. Funnily enough people I went with (actually lyrebird-spotting) are from Oakleigh, they were blown away with all the kookas we saw today so I'm guessing one in Oakleigh is a rare sight/noise. Only saw 3 lyre-birds and too quick for a photo!

Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best
