    Kookaburra [Australian Natural History Series]

    Kookaburra: King of the Bush

    Description

    The kookaburra figures prominently in the folklore of Australia, but its fame stretches across continents. Legge sketches out how the bird became so popular, then looks beyond its jolly image to explore its natural history and social behavior—including the violent tendencies of its young—as well as conservation status and management issues. Kookaburras are among the largest kingfishers in the world. They can live in a wide variety of habitats, and have adapted to living around humans relatively well. While they may be a familiar icon, Sarah Legge also explains why this laughing 'king of the bush' is a much more complex bird than generally assumed. This book provides a complete overview of kookaburras and their unique place in Australian culture and natural history. It features stunning colour photographs of the different species of kookaburra; new insights into kookaburra chick behaviour by Australia's leading kookaburra researcher; and an excellent overview of the ecology and behaviour of these famous birds.
