  • 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

  • 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.

  • I think after that he deserves to get laid

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

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

  • 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.

  • I feel like I'm being trolled here

  • Bird's got talent 0001f6090001f6090001f609

  • 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.

  • The chainsaw part totally blew my mind!

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

  • I was trying to figure out what kind of chainsaw he was imitating. It was either a Stihl or a Husqvarna.

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

  • If David Attenborough wasn't narrating, I'd just assume this was a fake and move on.

  • What a magnificent creature with an awesome voice! The bird isn't too bad either. :)

  • that is fascinating yet sad at the same time!

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

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

  • A distant cousin of peacock
