Did you know when you hear the chuckle of a kookaburra it is no laughing matter? Rather, it is a warning to other birds to keep clear of its territory. The largest of Australia's native kingfisher varieties, its name, 'Kookaburra' is derived from the Wiradjuri* name 'Gugubarra'.
*An aboriginal dialect from the traditional custodians of the lands surrounding Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, known as Wiradjuri country.
