Aussie Bush Birds - Short Fun Nonsense Verse for Kids

Updated on February 10, 2015

Famous Australian Birds from the Bush

This is a set of short nonsense poems for kids about some famous birds from the Australian bush which I wrote for my grandkids.

Hope you enjoy them.

The Kookaburra

Laughing Kookaburra
Laughing Kookaburra

The Kookaburra

The kookaburra laughs a lot

To him life's one big joke

He doesn't seem to worry much

He's just a happy bloke

Screeching cocky
Screeching cocky


One screeching cocky

sitting in a tree

he flew away

but then along came three

Three screeching cockies

hanging upside down

having such a funny time

stirring up the town

When up flew a big black crow

looking for some food

then all the cockies screeched at him

and off he was shooed

Bush Turkey

Gobble Gobble
Gobble Gobble

Bush Turkey

As I was walking down the street

A tall bush turkey I did meet

I was quite surprised to see him there

But he didn't panic, gobble or care

I tipped my hand and said 'G'day'

But he just kept walking on his way

Perhaps we'll meet another day

M.J. Drury (c) 2012
