The kookaburra is an eastern Australian bird of the kingfisher family whose call sounds like fiendish laughter. It can grow to 17 inches long with a 4-inch beak.
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh, Kookaburra, Laugh, Kookburra!
How gay your life must be.
Ha, ha, ha, ha.
