Description

Kookaburras, known as the Laughing Jackasses of Australia, are from the family Kingfishers. Similar to other kingfishers, Kookaburras have a stout and compact body, short neck, rather long and pointed bill and short legs. Kookaburras are 17 inches in height, the upper parts dark brown, the wings spotted gray-blue.
