    I remember singing a little song in music in elementary school about this bird. He does look happy. Beautifully drawn Karen… the detail.

  • Thank you so much Kate – was it “Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree, merry, merry king of the bush is he…”? LOL – we learnt that one in early primary school.

    “Laugh Kookaburra, laugh kookaburra, gay your life must be.haha!” Yep….we called it grammer school, then grade school, then elementary school later on….. but it was back in the late fifties and the song was one of the regulars in our music class from the 2nd through the fourth or fifth grade. Good ole days.

  • How funny – I thought they only taught that in Australian schools to boost our sense of patriotism. Brings back memories for sure!!

    Well, something else funny too…..I don’t think they ever told us that the Kookaburra was from Australia. I guess we were so young, they didn’t want to complicate things by giving us too much information. I think probably, the only thing we might have asked was “what is a Kookaburra?”
