Its a Cukaburra (sp?) bird....He is in the kingfisher family and is from Australia....Bad boy eats mice! And oddly enough, the chanting she does isnt near as annoying as a large "squaking" type bird, but they are building an outside cage for her. LOL!!!
Those suckers are thick around Perth and i fully disagree with them not being annoying. They are kinda cool the first few times that you hear them but after a week of those suckers going off at the crack of dawn while you are on vacation and you just want to kill them all.
