How to draw a Kingfisher Kookaburra.
Although I have never had a chance to visit Australia, since my childhood I really love the kingfisher laughing Kukkabarra. Mother read me a story about Gecko and his opponent Kookaburra.

And today I have a chance to at least learn how to draw my favorite bird.
