Some Birds Can Mimic Everything

That is a lyre bird that has taught itself to mimic some really amazing things, including a chainsaw and a camera shutter in an attempt to impress the ladies. It's an incredibly convincing imitation at that. David Attenborough provides the narration for this amusing video.

Unfortunately, the sounds of power tools means this bird's habitat is in danger. Hopefully, the forest will stay and he'll be able to keep singing his love song.


  1. The plume on these birds are simply amazing:

  2. Birds can have the craziest colors and patterns. These guys are fabulous.
