Lyrebird mimicry: birds, hammers & chainsaws

Did you know that male lyrebirds don’t have a call of their own, instead they are experts at mimicry. It’s not unusual for an individual to have mastered the calls of up to 25 birds which it can join together in a song to attract a mate… now that’s a handy skill!

The lyrebird that inhabits the eerie forest at The Firs Picnic Area in Barrington Tops is known for his motorcycle mimicry but to hear some truly extraordinary mimicry, check out the construction sounds of the lyrebird at Adelaide Zoo on Youtube.com
