Like all four species of kookaburras, Blue-winged kookaburras are carnivorous, feeding on invertebrates such as insects, Spiders, worms, centipedes and crustaceans. They also eat vertebrates such as reptiles, fish, frogs and even small birds and mammals. Kookaburras have been observed catching a snake or lizard, carrying it up into the trees, and vigorously beating it on a branch or dropping it to kill it.

No. Blue-winged kookaburras live in a variety of habitats, but not rainforest. They live in tropical and subtropical open woodlands, paperbark swamps, and in native trees along watercourses, in open clearings, canefields and farmland.


Blue-winged Kookaburras are birds. As such, like all birds, they reproduce by laying eggs. The kookaburra does not build a nest out of sticks and/or grass. Kookaburras lay up to three eggs in a nest they hollow out of an old termite nest, or a hollow already in a tree, which they will sometimes enlarge with their strong beaks.

Yes. The Blue-winged kookaburra ranges from 38-42 cm in length, while the Laughing kookaburra averages 40-45 cm in length.

Yes, kookaburras do have nests. Kookaburras make their nests in tree hollows, or in hollows within termite nests up in trees. They will use their strong beak to dig out the hollows to enlarge the space. Blue-winged kookaburras also make their nests in the soft bark of the baobab tree.
