Bayside bird watching – kookaburra spotted in Sandy

Chainsaw-carved hollows are one of the methods we use to provide suitable habitats for hollow-dependent species.

Seeing the kookaburra sitting in the old gum tree is a great result as the Aussie Backyard Bird count, run by Birdlife Australia, found a decline in this iconic species in heavily urbanised areas in eastern Australian capital cities.

Over 70 trees throughout Bayside now have habitat-salvaged log hollows or chainsaw-carved hollows.

Have you heard a kookaburra laugh in Bayside?
