The largest of the kingfishers, kookaburras mate for life, living in pairs or small family groups. They are found in open woodland areas throughout Australia and New Guinea. At twilight, kookaburras make loud, long calls that sound like laughter to let all know the boundaries of their territory. Despite being a member of the kingfisher family, they don’t eat fish. They use their large beaks to catch snakes, lizards, small birds, mice and insects.
