The Kookaburra Bird.
The kookaburra's loud call sounds like echoing human laughter. Four species of kookaburra can be found in Australia, New Guinea, and the Aru Islands. They are found in habitats ranging from humid forest to arid savanna, as well as in suburban areas with tall trees or near running water. Even though they belong to the larger group known as "kingfishers", kookaburras are not closely associated with water. The most social birds will accept handouts from humans and will take meat from barbecues. The distinctive sound of the laughing kookaburra's call is used in filmmaking and television productions, as well as certain Disney theme park attractions, regardless of where in the world the action is set. Kookaburras have also appeared in video games (Lineage II, Battletoads, and World of Warcraft) and at least in one short story (Barry Wood's Nowhere to Go). Interesting little bird... :)
