Kookaburras at home

On that beautiful day Graham and I went out for a walk and in our garden and down the road we could see Kookaburras in trees. They are lovely birds with a unique sound that is like a clearing of the throat before they begin their famous laughing sound.

  1. Love the birds, Kathie! Do Kukaburras have a good song?

    It’s not actually a song but definitely more like a laugh. They make this noise when calling to other Kookaburras, or warning them or simply at dawn and at the end of the day. Some say they do this in a chorus when rain is coming but I’ve heard it all sorts of times. Here’s a link that will let you hear it.
