" Lyrebirds are among Australia's best-known native birds. As well as their extraordinary mimicking ability, lyrebirds are notable because of the striking beauty of the male bird's huge tail when it is fanned out in display"
When I saw this clip for the very first time, I thought it's a fake or a joke.Than I started research the creature, and found out it's for real!
The first clip was created by David Attenborough, who is an amazing broadcaster and naturalist ( he also created a similar, though less authentic, clip for the promotion of his mom's store).
The second clip was created in the Adelaide Zoo, Australia, it shows the ability of the Lyrebird (Scientific name: Menura novaehollandiae) to copy a variety of sounds!
