One of Jamie’s biggest disappointments (possibly her only disappointment) on this trip is that we haven’t seen a single kookaburra. She loves to hear them laugh, especially when they wake us up early in the morning with their raucous cackling.
We went to Sydney’s Taronga Zoo yesterday and what do we see — sitting in a tree, not in a cage — but a kookaburra.
If you’ve never heard a kookaburra laugh, here’s a video. Makes us smile every time we hear this sound.
