Thanks Helen. That's better. Yes, the movie jungle sounds always had a Kookaburra. I've never heard a satisfactory explanation for that. There are some, but they seem far-fetched.
Our Kookaburras laugh when they know someone's lighting the Barbi down in the local park.
Local folklore has it that the Black Cockatoos arrive when it's going to rain but as they live locally, and it almost never rains, I've wondered how that works. Then there's Currawongs -- called Rain-birds - where do they go when it's not raining anywhere? Cheers, Joy
