It’s those crazy kookaburras again…

I have to admit that when I first heard it a couple months ago the noise scared the pants off me.  If you remember they disturbed my beauty sleep at what I thought was an outrageous hour (maybe like 5 am).  That first week it took me a couple days, but I eventually figured it out… kookaburras.  Unruly, insane toxin spewing winged creatures of death.  But wait it gets worse.
They have now started waking up even earlier.  It’s now routinely in the 4 am timeframe – and I think they have sensed weakness because they are perching on the terrace outside our bedroom window squawking like flying hyenas.  Ughh…  Now here’s the part that makes it even louder, (but it’ll make you jealous at the same time), it’s November here, Thanksgiving week no-less, and we’re sleeping with the windows open!  :-).
Wendy asked if I could get my hands on some little bird sleeping pills.  Perhaps we could find some that are worm flavoured and feed them to the stinking flying psycho-apes around sunset and put them out until morning. 
But wait it gets even worse than that.
The other day at the beach we got take-away fish & chips and were enjoying a beautiful beach afternoon with some friends.  I had taken maybe two bites of my fish when it was suddenly gone from my hand.  Just gone.  I didn’t see anything, don’t recall hearing any noise, nothing, just missing fish.  For a second I thought it had been knocked out of my hand by a ball or a Frisbee.  I looked around to see which kid I should shake my angry raised fist at.  But no, the others in the group quickly pointed out that a kookaburra had stolen my fish.  Fish thief!  I’ll admit that missing one fish & chips dinner probably does my mid-section more good than eating it, but to have it stolen from my hand by a dive-bombing fish felon was just too much.  I give up, a bird about the size of a game hen has beaten me.      
I can’t claim 100% that the bird who stole my fish was the same one who wakes me up in the morning, but I’d bet even money that it’s the same bird and he’s out to get me.  You win bird.
I bet he’d taste good all fried-up with some chips.
