Questions about kookaburras.

Cathy posted a comment on the previous post, and asked if the birds in the photos were babies, and if they are native to Australia. Kookaburras are members of the Kingfisher family, and there are a few varieties of Kingfishers which are native to Australia, including the two types of Kookaburra.
I don't know enough about their growing stages to tell you whether or not these ones are young birds. I've never seen baby kookaburras in the nest, or fledglings, so I don't know how they mature.
