I saw this on the news the other day, Chook is a Lyrebird at the Adelaide zoo.

They’ve been doing construction work around the zoo and Chook has picked up a lot of new sounds which he imitates. The zoo thinks he’s making the following sounds in this clip:

1. Hammer
2. Chainsaw
3. Jack hammer
4. Lawn mower hitting sticks
5. Leaf blower starting
6. Power drill
7. Wood saw
8. Human voices
9. Two-way radio
10.Worker whistling

In the clip he was also mimicking kookaburra and lorikeet sounds as well as other bird noises. What a fantastic bird! Check out Cook at the Adelaide Zoo for yourself.
