This Australian bird uses its voice to imitate everything from a jackhammer to a chainsaw to a crying baby. It can even carry two tunes at the same time."

“Nearly any sound can be imitated by lyrebirds. You will typically hear them duplicating loud, distinct sounds made by other birds, mammals, and even people. They have been reported to imitate sounds like as train whistles, horns, sirens, and chainsaws," another website NSW Department of Planning and Environment said.
