WHAT THEY EAT
Kookaburras mainly feeds on insects and worms. They also eat small snakes, mammals, frogs and birds. Small prey is eaten whole while larger prey is killed by bashing it against a tree branch or on the ground. They don’t need to drink as they get water from their food.
They pair for life with both sexes sharing the incubation and rearing of the young. They can lay up to 4 eggs but the birth rate is low to keep pace with their longevity. Their life expectancy is about 15 years. Breeding season is September to January.
