Unusually coloured Kooka

-

Mathoura resident Anne Robertson, known for her hospitalit­y, got an unexpected rare visitor last week — a black Kookaburra.

And Anne’s hospitalit­y must have impressed the bird, as it made another appearance the next day.

While there have been sightings of black kookaburra­s in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia, this is the first sighting in the Mathoura area.

Actually, albino kookaburra­s are more common than black ones, although the last sighting of one of these was in Queensland in 2010.
