Today’s clip comes from a BBC nature show with David Attenborough featuring the lyre bird, which can apparently mimic any sound it hears. Fast forward to the 1:54 mark for the money shot of the bird mimicking two different types of cameras, a car alarm, and foresters with chainsaws. Definitely makes your cockatiel saying “here kitty kitty” seem stupid. Well, more stupid, anyway. Anyone else smell a buddy cop movie starring the bird and that guy from the Police Academy movies? Imagine the hijinks! Police Work is for the Birds, they could call it.
