Rose Byrne (of Bridesmaids and several titles since) hails from Australia, land of confusing animals. Around second :50 she recreates the call of the Kookaburra, a bird found in rural regions like Tasmania, where Byrne's parents live. It's magnificent. Here the actual call below, so compare, contrast, and consider Byrne as the keynote speaker at your next bird call convention.
