If you’ve never heard a kookaburra singing, just think of your laughter after hearing a really funny joke. That gives you an idea of the echoing sound of the ever-chuckling kookaburra! In indigenous Australian culture, kookaburras are viewed as emotionally fragile birds. Making fun of us can hurt our feelings, thus taking away our joyous laugh which serves to wake up our world. It is believed that great respect should be shown to us at all times to keep harmony and happiness on our planet.
