Bird Sounds from the Lyre Bird
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.  The Lyre can immitate sounds from over 20 different species as well as other sounds in his environment (like a car alarm).
