  • Attenborough: the amazing Lyre Bird sings like a chainsaw! Now in high quality | BBC Earth etiketleri


  • Wow! I thought the simple bird impersonations were impressive, then the camera shutter and the car alarm, too. But that chainsaw sound was unbelievable. O.O

  • This bird puts that dude in police academy to shame

  • So, let me get this straight. In this forest this bird has seen people taking pictures, people cutting trees, and has heard sirens? Wth is going on there?

  • I think after that he deserves to get laid

  • This lyrebird is close to a highway that runs through an area called the Black Spur. (I recognise his mound). That is why he hears the vehicle and human sounds. Chainsaws are used to clear trees that have fallen across the road. There are no trees cut down here as they are protected.

  • How the hell does the female know thay its a lyre bird calling?

  • Wow, that's so incredible, it almost seems fake. I can't believe that any bird would be able to make those sounds. I'm still amazed at just how intelligent these birds are.

  • World's most amazing things come in simple humble packets. Lyre bird looks simple but when it starts to sing... Oh my gosh. It's the most divine sounds in a forest. Love this little guy. God has specially crafted this bird with care. But I felt sad Wen it imitated the car, camera and finally chainsaw. Although it was fantastic to hear but it had a hidden meaning about deforestation and human intervention into its beautiful world.

  • I cried when I heard the chainsaw sound. He is singing a song about his homeland being destroyed by invaders. Very sad indeed 0001f622

  • The chainsaw part totally blew my mind!

  • that is fascinating yet sad at the same time!

  • I wonder how long he practised copying those sounds?! We're familiar with these sounds and wouldn't have a hope in hell imitating them. The fact he can, and likes the sounds enough to make them, is unbelievable. What a dude.

  • I feel like I'm being trolled here

  • Bird's got talent 0001f6090001f6090001f609

  • Somehow, I think the BBC is trolling its audience by dubbing chainsaw sounds over well-timed vocalizations from the lyre bird.

  • This poor bird really needs to get away from the city

  • Can’t wait when one of these birds impersonates a couple having fun in the forest, if u no wat i meen

  • I have watched many Attenborough videos but this one is the best

  • I lost it at "that was a camera shutter"

  • Hope he gets laid
