Lyre Bird: An Accomplished Mimic

"Amazing! Bird sounds from the lyre bird - David Attenborough - BBC wildlife"

"David Attenborough presents the amazing lyre bird, which mimics the calls of other birds - and chainsaws and camera shutters - in this video clip from The Life of Birds. This clever creature is one of the most impressive and funny in nature, with unbelievable sounds to match the beautiful pictures. From the BBC."

The Lemming remembers when tuning in a radio signal occasionally sounded like the lyre bird.

Lyre birds are quite accomplished mimics: imitating other birds, camera shutters (manual and motorized), a car alarm, and a chain saw.
