Glenworth Valley, NSW
Australia - 21 Jun 2006
The Australian aborigines have a legend about the Kookaburra.
When the sun rose for the first time, the god Bayame ordered the kookaburra to utter its loud, almost human laughter in order to wake up mankind so that they should not miss the wonderful sunrise.
The aborigines also believed that any child who insulted a kookaburra would grow an extra slanting tooth.
