that would be a compliment sal, as they are a gorgeous bird, even though the beak is a mean streak on it they are fantastic. When they are tame like cookie they make it even more the worth while. Unfortunately I dont think you can keep them as a pet in Aus as they are protected, because cookie keeps coming back I guess he is only a visitor lol. He knows where the food is.
Karen you can correct me on my quote of having kookaburras as pets, as I am not sure on that one but pretty certain they are only wild birds.
