Not only is that Australian, but its form my home city!!!

They are doing some renovations at the Zoo and consequently using chainsaws near the Lyerbird enclosure. Lo and behold the Lyerbird imitated the Chainsaw :P

Haha, yeah I've seen those before. Pretty insane. I've seen one (on TV) imitate a car alarm too.

Seriously you Aussies should breed these birds and then let them listen to tank threads, gunfire, etc. Whenever someone invades you Aussies, let loose the Lyrebirds and make the enemy really scared and disoriented.

Epic Psychological warfare in a bird, and you help maintain its natural population. Killing two birds with one stone.

I would make it listen to Arnold Schwarzenegger soundboards. :P

"Come with me if you want to live"

...and watch people try to keep up with it.

Only 1 in captivity. Those would make awesome pets. Screw parrots that say hello. I want something that will REALLY get guests attention. Just put its cage next to the TV, on the war channel and walk away.

I wonder if you could train one to watch you play a game, MW2 or Halo, learn the sounds... then play the game with the volume off and have the bird do all the sound effects. That would be amazing ;D.

Or do sound effects for your 40k games. Whenever a unit assaults another have it make chainsaw noises. Whenever you shoot and kill something it makes gun noises.

Watched a video in Brain Behaviour the other day with these birds, it started mimicking the camera shutter noises as the filmed it. Then yeah, started doing chainsaw noises and tree's falling over as it had been exposed to deforestation. Very amusing though. The birds actually try to out do each other, the best songs win themselves a mate.
