Approximately 5.5cm x 7cm (varies with each bird) - Note: Individually handcrafted therefore no two are alike. Slight variations will apply with each piece. The chuckling voice that gives this species its English name is a common and familiar sound throughout the bird's range. The loud 'koo-koo-koo-koo-koo-kaa-kaa-kaa' is often sung in a chorus with other individuals. The Laughing Kookaburra also has a shorter 'koooaa', which is normally given when accompanied by other members of its family group.


The Kookaburra is known by all in Australia for its loud and raucous call. In Aboriginal myth the Kookaburra’s laughter signals the dawn so the Sky people can light the fire which creates the day.
