Also known as: Alarm Bird, Laughing Jackass, Breakfast Bird, Brown Kingfisher, Bushman's Clock, Giant Kingfisher, Ha Ha Duck, Ha Ha Pigeon, Kooka, Laughing Jack, Settler's Clock, Woop Woop Pigeon, Kookaburra

The Laughing Kookaburra is a very large species of kingfisher native to eastern Australia. They have brown and white plumage and are named for their distinctive "laughing" call, which sounds like "kook kook kook ka ka ka."

Laughing Kookaburras live in family groups in woodlands. They feed on small rodents, lizards, snakes, and other small prey items. They hunt primarily over land, searching for food from a fixed perch and then seizing prey as it passes by.

Laughing Kookaburras are common throughout their range, and are often seen near human developments, including parks, yards, and gardens.
