Rufous-bellied kookaburra (Dacelo gaudichaud)
The rufous-bellied kookaburra is a species of kookaburra which is widely distributed through the forests of lowland New Guinea. It has also been recorded on Saibai Island, Queensland, Australia. Rufous-bellied kookaburras are smaller than other kookaburra species at around 143 grams as against the laughing kookaburra’s 335 grams and about 28 centimetres as against the laughing kookaburra’s 46 centimetres. This kookaburra is unusual in that it occupies dense rainforests and does not live in cooperative breeding family groups but singly or when breeding in pairs.
