One of my favorite cartoonists passed this along. He is right, this is absolutely amazing!
Sheldonista Tom M. sent me this YouTube link, and it absolutely blew me away. You have to listen to this Australian Lyre Bird.
As a mating tool, he mimics the sounds he hears around him. “Not so amazing,” you might be saying. But…around the two-minute point in the video, you’ll see just how amazing that mimickry is.
This bird is stone-cold awesome.
