EDiM #2: Draw a Favorite Sound

EDiM #2 calls for us to draw a favorite sound.  One that came to mind immediately was the call of the Laughing Kookaburra.  While visiting Australia a few months ago, we became introduced to the laughing cackle of this bird, and since then it never has failed to bring a smile to my face.  One cannot help but want to "laugh" with this bird!

One evening I recorded it's sound from inside my tent.

This sketch was from a photo we took at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures north of Cairns, QLD.  It's a resident there because of an injured wing.
