Kookaburra's, an awesome Australian bird that is a total bad ass with it's totally bad ass laugh that just loves to wake you up in 4 in the morning, or let you know you should have been in bed hours ago.

Sure there are other birds, but this one is so damn distinct and they are everywhere. There might be a few birds cheeping, then BAM kookaburra starts going off 10 times as loud.

So yeah, I was wondering, is there a type of bird in your country or just where ever you live that has a really distinct call and without fail will go off all morning while the sun rises.

EDIT: Yeah I know I buggered up the title should be "country's". Sorry I had to grammar Nazi myself before someone else pointed it out.

Where I live in Norway we have this bad ass



Yeah you noticed the colors first huh? Well that ain't all to it. This bad ass dude has smooth wings that are shiny as fuck. Yeah this bad ass is worse than most people when someone hits on his lady, it's like turning on a switch and this little fucker goes mental. He loves eating worms and shit like that, berries and seeds ain't enough for this LAD. When this mofo starts cheeping everyone knows shit is about to happen, and stay out of his way.

As his Aussie cousin this madLAD loves cheeping in the morning, and just love waking people up and pissing them off.

This is the Kjøttmeis, he rolls with the B.B.F.L (Bad Boys for Life) gang and as everyone knows, they don't fuck around.

Bloody woodpeckers.

Hammering on anything hard (like the walls of your house) at the crack of dawn - and continuing in this vein for hours, H O U R S.

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree,
Merry merry king of the bush is he.

Gay your life must be!

Seagulls! Bloody seagulls!
Every morning about an hour before sunrise they start crying, and they don't shut up for hours. Then they come and steal your food and crap on you and all of your stuff.
I don't even live near the sea! Seagulls are everywhere in the UK. They're vermin.

You have a talent for exaggerating, I must say. I never though I'd see the common or garden Great Tit described like that.
They're pretty small birds. Fairly tame, too, which is why you get so many flitting around gardens.

vvvvvvvvvvvvvvThis will make you laugh and its 100% true.vvvvvvvvvvvvvv

I lived close to the woods and one day while i was sleeping a woodpecker starts pecking at our metal chimney. My dad woke up and said'' go see what that is ''. I went outside, walked around the house, saw the woodpecker and he flew away. came back in and went back to sleep. not 20 minutes later he started peckin again. dad said ''what is that'' and i said ''a woodpecker''. he said ''go shew it off''. I went out side and shewed it off then i went to sleep again. he came back and started again. dad said '' DAMNIT, GO KILL IT'' went outside with a 22 magnum and he flew off as soon as i got there. next day he went at it again. dad said "uuhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHH.........AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH" i took that for a go kill it. went outside and unloaded 2 shots its way and expect him to take that for a leave. went inside, went back to sleep. peck peck peck.......peck peck peck...HELL NO. put some pants on, got a 12 gauge pump shot gun, walked the oppisite way around the house, snook up on it and i blew that little bird ta peices. I walked up to his little mangled body, bent down over it and yelled "WHAT".


Went back to sleep feelin like a boss.

Closest thing we have here is the Mourning Dove. It can wake you up but it's a lot more soothing sound than a kookaburra.

edited for your convenience: the Mourning Dove call actually begins at 16 seconds in.

Also THIS bird is pure badassery. It lives on the opposite side of the planet however.
