You can't get more Australian then having these two on your wall!
Kookaburras live in close family groups. Not only do they mate for life, they keep their off-spring around for up to 3 years to help with future chick raising. I think us humans could learn a lot from them!!!
The distinctive “laugh” of a Kookaburra is actually to warn off other Kookaburra from their territory.
These are Angela's locals. Angela used to think they were laughing at her (She's English!!), but soon realised they were telling other Kooka's to "bugger off"!
