The kookaburra is a large, noisy bird from forests on the islands of Australia, Tasmania, and New Guinea. Its loud, distinctive call sounds like human laughter. The kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher family. Kookaburras live in family groups. They have a life span of about 20 years.

Anatomy: The kookaburra is up to 18.5 inches (47 cm) long and weighs about 1 pound (0.5 kg). The bill is up to 4 inches (10 cm) long.

Diet: The kookaburra is a carnivore (meat-eater). It eats large insects, earthworms, small reptiles, and amphibians. After catching prey, the kookaburra pounds it against a tree branch or rock, probably in order to tenderize the meat. The kookaburra doesn't drink any water; it gets enough water from the food it eats.

Eggs and Nests: Kookaburras usually nest in a hole in a tree. Females lay 2-4 white eggs in each clutch (a set of eggs laid at one time). The eggs hatch in 24 - 26 days.
