Parrot species are found in abundance in Australia. Their beautiful colours, and ability to to talk have made them a favourite as pets. Other recognisable Australian birds include the Kookaburra which is known for its loud laughing call, the Australian Magpie, and the tall Jabiru. Some Australian birds look and act like birds in the Northern Hemisphere, but are totally unrelated. Australian robins and wrens are not related to their northern hemisphere counterparts for example.
