About this book

Kookaburras are among the largest kingfishers in the world. They can live in a wide variety of habitats, and have adapted to living around humans relatively well. While they may be a familiar icon, Sarah Legge also explains why this laughing 'king of the bush' is a much more complex bird than generally assumed. This book provides a complete overview of kookaburras and their unique place in Australian culture and natural history. It features stunning colour photographs of the different species of kookaburra; new insights into kookaburra chick behaviour by Australia's leading kookaburra researcher; and an excellent overview of the ecology and behaviour of these famous birds.
