In Cheeky Kookaburra, a young kookaburra enjoys being the comedian of his family. But when he has something important to say, no-one takes him seriously! The laughing kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher family. It is well known for its cry, which sounds like laughter. The cry of the blue-winged kookaburra is higher in pitch. Kookaburras call to claim their territory, which they share with family members. The white kookaburra is an albino that Steve Parish photographed at Healesville Sanctuary in Victoria.
