Kingfisher bird is the laughing Kookaburra of Australia, which lives in dry and fishless scrubland. It is sometimes called as “laughing jackass” because of its loud raucous cackle.

The Australian Kookaburra is the largest member in the family. The bird is known for its wild laughing call and the noisy inhabitant of outback, open forest and the woodland. Kookaburra is not a fish eater, it usually prefers to eat large insects, nestling birds, rodents etc. Young chicks of kookaburras stay with their parents for several years, before setting out to breed themselves.

According to Nambooka, the kingfisher teaches us about alertness and opportunity. We must first look and then decide if it is the right choices for us to benefit our lives. Nambooka’s design work is bold, colourful and attractive.
