Kookaburra & Eastern Brown Snake 24/10/11

While driving in the driveway at Jarowair this morning, I witnessed a Kookaburra swoop down to the front lawn and pick up an Eastern Brown Snake (abt 1m length) and fly up to a branch in a close by iron bark tree. I pulled up and grabbed by little "handbag camera" and was able to get a photo before it flew off with its prize.  It was a fantastic sight!  J.G.
