This bird can mimic any sound with extreme precision

The Lyrebird is probably the most interesting bird on the planet.  It has an extraordinary ability to mimic many natural and artificial sounds around him.  The Lyrebird’s vocal organ is the most complex of the songbirds, this gives the bird the ability to mimic, with high fidelity, other birds and animals as well as artificial sounds produced by humans and other noises such as a car’s engine sound, fire alarm, camera shutter, a dog bark and many more.

The Lyrebird can live up 30 years, is primarily ground dwelling and is native to Australia.
