Lyre Lyre, Pants on Fire.

Heres some amazing footage of the Lyre bird. Narrated by David Attenborough, the voice of the natural world. Its a reminder of what an amazing, awe inspiring and wonderful place the world is.I’ve watched it about 10 times already, and to be honest it sounds so scarily realistic that if richie wasn’t narrating I’d think it was a hoax.There is a more sinister twist though, listen to the sounds that the bird mimics. The call of the Kookaborough is followed by some other not so organic sounds that he hears in his forest habitat.The Lyre’s accurate mimicry is impressive, the sounds of the forest that it chooses to mimic are a little bit worrying.
