Is this a real or fantasy bird?

Asking for advice on what type of bird this may be? 

 

Sometimes jewelry pieces are a fantasy whimsical design and not an actual bird, animal etc. Wondering if there's a bird with a blue belly and that beak.

 

Google lens didn't help.

TIA

Stylized kookaburra??

 

With birds and animals there's  often a lot of artistic license.  In other words, anything goes.

 

The real thing

Kookaburra is a good one!  I just looked them up and they are part of the Kingfisher family that have funny hair like the pin has.

I'm also thinking Kookaburra. It's unusual and I really like it! Lately I'm gathering brooches and have random pieces of several generations I'm going to shadow box for presentation/display at an upcoming family reunion next year.

My guess was gonna be a kingfisher. We have them around here.

That sounds absolutely wonderful!  They're little pieces of art work and capture a place in time, your family will love it.

 

So nice to see value placed on vintage pieces.
