Possibly a Laughing Kookaburra aka Dacelo novaeguineae. The Laughing Kookaburra is endemic to the forests and woodlands of eastern Australia. Because of its loud calls and large size it is one of Australia's most familiar birds. Differences from Blue-winged Kookaburra include: brownish crown, dark streak through eye and dark eye. It is the world's largest kingfisher. See !Birdwatching!. (Taken June 2000.)
