While you may not have seen a Kookaburra, you likely have heard one. Hollywood has used the Kookaburra song as a background in many movies when on location in a jungle or forest, even when the location is not Australia.

The birds call sounds like crazy laughter and they are particularly noisy at dawn and dusk.

Kookaburras diet consists of small birds, snakes, lizards, insects, and mice. They often hang around barbeque areas in order to eat scrap meat. There are four different species of kookaburra.
