They appear to be big birds are they? the reason I asked is because I was comparing your hand to him as you were petting him.

Hmm i think it might just be the awkward angle i took it on, i was trying to be quick. I guess they are average sized birds O_o

it depends on what kind of bird we are measuring it up against to decide if its big or not, i think kookaburras are more sort of fat/fluffy then anything lol
