Connor filmed his Kookaburra, named Dacelo, cooing at their home in Woodcroft, Australia. When the bird started “laughing” Connor was quick to act and filmed it all in slow motion!

Footage shows a kookaburra bird flaunting its best villainous laugh on camera. After hearing this bird’s evil laugh, we bet filmmakers will consider using it in their next horror movie! Have you ever heard a Kookaburra bird laugh? Well, it is good that owner decided to capture the amazing howling on camera, and better yet film it in slow motion. Is it us or does this bird sounds more demonic than endearing?

Owner Connor Margetts from Adelaide, Australia named his bird after the genus Dacelo. However, he never knew that his bird can produce such a horrific sound. Watch as bird’s neck feathers vibrate as the bird produces this curious laughter. The spooky laughter becomes even more creepy through the slow motion feature due to the added villainous element. Crazy!

The brown and white bird seems to be in its element, opening up its beak wide as if really is laughing at something, and its whole body vibrates with tremor. Amazing!

Footage shows the bird staring at the camera and laughing in slow motion, making it sound like an evil character from a horror film. The high-pitched shrill gave us the chills!

Kookaburras are terrestrial tree kingfishers of the genus Dacelo native to Australia and New Guinea. The loud distinctive call of the laughing kookaburra is widely used as a stock sound effect in situations that involve an Australian bush setting. They are found in habitats ranging from humid forest to arid savanna, as well as in suburban areas with tall trees or near running water. Even though they belong to the larger group known as "kingfishers", kookaburras are not closely associated with water.
