The kookaburra chortle is the sound of the Australian bush. The name of the bird, a kingfisher, comes from the sound of their call "kook, kook, kook, ka,ka,ka". It is said they call as a group to establish territory, but it is also believed by many that the call heralds rain. At my house, they do it to get my attention and to thank me if I feed them! When I make the call, they fly across the valley to my balcony.
This kooka is settled in my sewing basket.
