Laughing Kookaburra

Dacelo novaeguineae

Description:

The Laughing Kookaburra is the largest of the kingfisher family, and famous for its chorus of laughter which echoes through the Australian bush. Unlike most of its relatives, kookaburras occupy the same territories year-round which they mark with their noisy calls. Each group knows the boundaries of each other’s territories by communicating before the spring breeding season to establish boundaries. (From Australia Zoo website)

Habitat:

I saw this particular Kookaburra perching on the tall electricity poles and wires near my cousins house in Kincumber on the Central Coast New South Wales
