Birdsong Remixed

The male Lyrebird impresses mates by imitating chainsaws, car alarms, camera shutters, and other sounds of the forest.

A male lyrebird attempts it impress mates with a mind boggling mixture of its own song and a number of other sounds that it has heard. Mind you, these are not just the calls of other birds. The lyrebird intersperses its song with some extraordinary mimicry of camera shutters, chain sawsm car sounds . . .virtually any sound that it has ever heard.

Don't believe it? Watch this Google video:
