Kookaburra, Corten Steel Outdoor Bird Silhouette
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree.... The precisely cut silhouette of a Kookaburra is made from 3mm Corten® steel. Once exposed to the elements, this special steel develops a stable rust-like deep brown appearance. The layer acts as a protection against further corrosion. The iconic bird adds a statement element to your outdoor area, attracts real birds just like himself & is tough and almost bulletproof. To install it you simply hammer it into timber.
It turns out that the laughing Kookaburra is the largest Kingfisher in the world. Theories abound but perhaps this is due in main to its aversion to the typical weight watching diet of fish, preferring the apparent calorie rich fast food diet of lizards, mice (and if he's making an afternoon of it, ssssnake.) Pre meal witnesses have reported seeing Kookaburras dropping their catch repeatedly onto hard surfaces and theories point to ancient tenderising techniques. Clearly bones are tough to digest for this stocky jovial character. It's a little known fact that the characteristic call from which the laughing Kookaburra gets its (rather apparent) name is actually a courtesy wake up call to the sky people to 'light the great fire' and herald the new day. We say keep up the good work!
