Mimic This, Mimic That

What if they were tearing down your house, and all you could do was make the sounds of them tearing it down -- but make them perfectly?  That's what the Lyra Bird does.  It's as if it has a tape recorder built in it's throat.  You have to see it, umm, hear it, to believe it.  It mashes up all the sounds it hears together too, so one moment it is singing a song of a neighboring fowl and then a split second later it sounds like a camera shutter or a chain saw.  Can you say "whacky?"

Thanks Tod H.W.!
