"One of the Stock Sound Effects that pop up whenever films, cartoons or TV series depict a jungle environment with a Noisy Nature is the cackling laugh of the kookaburra, which sounds something like: "OOOOOO-HOOO-OOO-HOO-HOO-AHAHAHAHA" and is often assumed to be a monkey by people unfamiliar with the bird. It doesn't help much that we typically hear the sound without actually seeing the animal making it, thus adding to the confusion."
Why wouldn't they just use monkeys? They should use monkeys. It would make more sense to me, but whatever, no one even saw the difference. Still, it's nice to know that a bird like this can make that kind of sound. I love working with sound effects, and that's why I use ree sound effects royalty-free all the time. They have a huge sound effect library, and I know that I could find the right monkey sound effects if I ever needed them. Websites like this can help a lot when it comes to working with editing sound effects like I do. Having something like this for free is an awesome thing to have.
