@CaraCompass I genuinely thought that was a rabbit!— S. (@E_c_h_o) March 25, 2017

@CaraCompass interestingly, my Australian chums struggle to see the rabbit. Their familiarity with the kookaburra makes it really dominate.— Mark Haselgrove (@MarkHaselgrove) March 25, 2017
@CaraCompass this is so bloody obvious, it's a Kookaburra— Tatsuya Orimura (@TatsuyaOrimura) March 26, 2017
