The different kookaburra subspecies all have fairly distinct plumage, with this figurine depicting the white chest feathers, brown and white spotted wings, and striped head common to the laughing kookaburra. Hand-painted and meticulously researched to assure true-to-life accuracy, all Safari wildlife figurines are exceptional as educational tools, gifts, additions to a collection, or as toys for creative play. Fun facts about the bird: Native to Australia and New Guinea, the kookaburra was named after its unique call, the sound of which is actually onomatopoeic with its name. Its call had been said to sound like human laughter, and there’s even a subspecies known as the laughing kookaburra as a result.
