This bird can imitate a chainsaw and camera! Plus new sub-species of bird discovered...

This Lyrebird from Australia can imitate over 20 birds but it has also learnt to imitate other sounds. It imitates the birders who take photos of it by mimicking the camera shutter. It also can imitate the sound of chainsaws, which makes you a bit sad as you know those chainsaws must be close and destroying their habitat since it has learnt to imitate it.

Anyways the Lyrebird is remarkable and you can watch David Attenborough's encounter with it below:



Also a new bird was discovered in Australia. It too is impacted by us humans...watch the view below:



This last video was brought to you by this lovable old Coot I met at Reifel yesterday.
