Laughing Kookaburra

The Laughing Kookaburras were named for their laughing calls.


The Laughing Kookaburras are indigenous to the woodlands of Eastern mainland Australia, but they have also been introduced to Western Australia, Tasmania, Flinders Island, Kangaroo Island, and New Zealand.



It is the largest member of the Kingfisher family, with a stocky, solidly built body that measures about 45 cm (18 in) in length from beak to tail.

Male and female adults are similar in plumage, which is predominantly brown and white.
