The Taipei Zoo has its first laughing kookaburra chicks.

Taipei Zoo announces its pair of laughing kookaburras in the Tropical Rainforest Area has a trio of chicks around the closure of Taipei Zoo due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The call of the laughing kookaburra sounds like human laughter, most frequently at dawn and dusk. The pair of laughing kookaburras had had chicks before, but they all died soon after being hatched.
This year, in response to the COVID 19 outbreak, Taipei Zoo had to temporarily shut its door to the public, leaving only zookeepers and a few staff around where laughing kookaburras live. Perhaps, because of the absence of visitors, or the fact that they are more experienced, the birds successfully raise their young this time.
