A Kookaburra bird sings in an Australian garden.
Titles read: "The world's perfect audience. A native of Australia, he's the storyteller's joy - he laughs to order..."
In a garden we see various shots of the Kookaburra bird or Laughing Jackass. He sits on a little perch and makes his distinctive call - it sounds like a laugh. A woman gets the bird to perch on her finger and coaxes him into singing again.
