On our recent trip to the Sunshine Coast Qld. We stayed in Montville in a treehouse. After the torrential rain had stopped, we had breakfast with a family of Laughing Kookaburra’s.. Here are some photos and video..
All kookaburras are sexually dimorphic, but this is only obvious in the Blue-winged and the Rufous-bellied, where males have blue tails, females rufous.
- Rufous-bellied Kookaburra (Dacelo gaudichaud). (southern New Guinea, Saibai island)
- Spangled Kookaburra (Dacelo tyro). (Aru Islands, southern New Guinea)
- Blue-winged Kookaburra (Dacelo leachii). (northern Australia, southern New Guinea)
- Laughing Kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae). (native to eastern Australia, introduced to southwest Australia)
