About the Kookaburra

The Kookaburra, also known as the 'Laughing Jackass' is, without doubt, Australia's best-known and favorite bird. They respond to humans well and will return day after day to the same houses where food is offered. They range from Cape York (the northernmost point of Australia), down through Eastern and Southern Australia to the Eyre Peninsula and Kangaroo Island. Introduced into Western Australia in 1898 and Tasmania in 1905 they are thriving.

In the past the Kookaburra was commonly known as the bushman's alarm clock from its habit of laughing loudly just before dawn and at sunset. The nest of the Kookaburra is usually high in a hollow tree, where from one to four eggs are laid.

The Galah, another Ross Original design, would make an excellent contrasting pair.

Please contact your nearest Australian Retail Outlet or Overseas Distributor (if not from Australia) if you wish to purchase this chart.
