Menura is fowl

Australia's lyrebird has an uncanny ability to mimic almost any sound it hears including those of other birds, chainsaws, camera shutters, humans, etc... By continuously learning to imitate new noises the lyrebird has developed an ever-mutating repertoire of communication. Truly amazing.
