Blue Winged Kookaburra Print

Art print of an original painting by Helen Ansell.

Kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae)
The laughing kookaburra is the largest of the kingfisher family, and famous for its chorus of laughter which echoes through the Australian bush. Unlike most of its relatives, kookaburras occupy the same territories year-round which they mark with their noisy calls. Each group knows the boundaries of each others territories by communicating before the spring breeding season to establish boundaries. The name is a loanword from Wiradjuri guuguubarra, onomatopoeic of its call.
