Did you hear him 'laugh'? In German, we call him 'Lachender Hans' (Laughing Hans) - it is amazing.

I just learnt the the nursey rhyme when I was younger:
"Kookaburra sits on the old gum treee, merry merry king of the bush is he; laugh Kookaburra, laugh Kookaburra. Gay your life must be."

Amanda, this was a song when I was little! Everytime I hear Kookaburra, I think of this song which is exactly the same as your nursery rhyme. BTW, this is a great pic of a little bird with a big laugh!
