What Window Are We Going To Go Through Today?

I was walking up my internal stairs a few days ago and got the feeling that I was being watched, a feeling I haven't had before and with good reason, because unless someone is standing on my roof or the roof across the road chances are nobody can look though my internal staircase window.
I turned around when I reached the top of the stairs and sure enough there was a kookaburra sitting on top of the lamppost outside my window looking in. 
I walked into my bedroom to grab my cell phone camera and could see the bird's head following my movement as I walked.
As I was watching the bird through my rectangular window I had a flash-back to my youth when watching the television show 'Play School' where they would pick a window to take you through on an adventure, sort of like going through a portal, or more like a port hole, if they chose the round window ... which I think was my favourite window.

Then I remembered the little kingfisher that nearly killed itself by trying to fly through my window one morning, and was largely responsible for me starting to write this blog, something I thought I would never do.

I've never seen a kingfisher again since that day, but kookaburras are terrestrial tree kingfishers of the genus Dacelo native to Australia.
Listening to a podcast this morning featuring Julia Cameron, she said, "nature is a portal to the divine" and I just had to find a picture of birds with the sun in the background and put her quote on it, as it struck me as quite profound in hindsight.

The nature of art is divine and so is synchronicity, don't you think?
Well, if you don't then maybe you look through the square window a bit too much:-)

UPDATE: October 15th, 2018
Looks like I've got myself a little stalker.
I went for a trip to the loo this morning, looked out the rectangular window again at the falling rain outside and there on the lamppost was the kookaburra once more.
I guess you just gotta laugh about it when you are being stalked by a kookaburra:-)
