The kookas were flying by in the dark, and lining up before it got light this morning and when Bruce put out some meat around 6:18 am they descended. There were 5 on cam at one point, and Bruce said 7 were waiting!

By 6:24 am the dish was empty! This young kooka looked so forlorn when he discovered there was none left!

Image

Bruce refilled the dish a few minutes later and the youngster got some meat then. ♥

:wacko: Oops. I guess I should have worded it a little differently. I meant that there were 5 on cam and Bruce said that 7 had been waiting! ;) :P
