Return of the Leucistic Kookaburra

Not an Albino

So 2.5Yrs ago, I got a visit from a scrawny all white Kookaburra, which I was lucky enough to photograph. Even managed a few in flight shots. You can see and read about the article here  and here is a shot of him back then.

Wee here is a shot of him with another “family” member next to him. Looking much more plump and healthy, assuming it is the same Laughing Kookaburra.

Almost felt a bit special to see this guy again. I also read that kookaburra’s can live from 11-15 yrs in the wild, and as much as 20yrs in captivity.
