I am one of the larger members of the Kingfisher family. Australia’s most iconic bird, we are known as the Laughing Kookaburra but we are not really laughing when we make our familiar call. The cackle is actually a territorial call to warn other birds to stay away from us.
We are instantly recognisable in both plumage and voice and are generally off-white below, faintly barred with dark brown and brown on our backs and wings. Our tail is more rufous, broadly barred with black.
There is a conspicuous dark brown eye-stripe through my face and humans believe that we are paired for life.
Size: 34cm x 25cm
Our animals are laser cut from 3mm Corten® Steel.
A copper chromium alloy steel, Corten is weather resistant – it’s designed to rust quickly, which gives a layer of protection. It means that our animals last for decades, with a patina that changes with the seasons.
Australian Made. In relentless pursuit of all things local, our packaging and products are all made right here in Australia,
All our animals come in a beautifully designed box which brings almost as much joy as the animal inside
