This Mindblowing Creature Perfectly Mimics Cameras, Chainsaws, and More

We’ve seen people do impressions, but this bird has them all beat.

These creatures, called a Lyrebird, live in south Australia and are renowned for their stunning ability to mimic the noises around them, both natural and artificial. In this short video, you can see one of the specimens imitating recognizable noises of humans in the forest.

The video, narrated by the one and only David Attenborough, was taken from the BBC series Life of Birds.

Watch as the bird mimics cameras, chainsaws, and car alarms in the three minute video above. Skip to the two minute mark to see the meat of the video.
