Laughing Kookaburra Photos

Dacelo novaeguineae

The iconic Laughing Kookaburra, star of the silver screen! Whenever Hollywood need a "jungle" bird song, they throw in a call of a Laughing Kookaburra. They weren't all that vocal when we were there, although we did hear them. They were all over the place, not super common in any one spot, but it seems like they could show up just about anywhere, from urban parks, to farmland, to rainforest edges.
