An Australian zoo has shown a video clip of a unique bird, imitating the sounds it hears in a surprising and frightening way at the same time, as the bird managed to photograph a crying baby very elaborately.
Officials inside Taronga Park in Sydney, Australia, filmed a lyre bird named “Echo”, a 7-year-old male, imitating the sound of a crying baby in an incredibly elaborate manner..
The supervisor of Taronga Park in the Australian city of Cindy, Lynne Jolibewski, said in newspaper statements that the bird “Echo” has been training to master the voice of the crying child for a year, during the closure period due to the pandemic of the emerging Corona virus, according to the Al-Ain website.
Fly imitating sounds
“I can only assume that the bird picked up the sound from our guests, as I think the zoo is a happy place for families to visit,” Jolibewski joked.
Jolibewski pointed out that the bird “Echo” mimics other sounds, including the sound of the alarm to evacuate the park when a fire breaks out.
The harp birds that live in Australia consist of two types, the males are known for their long tail of feathers, as well as for their ability to imitate sounds, from car alarms to the sounds of electronic games..
Another bird of the same type appeared in a video clip, imitating the sound of a car, motorcycle, ambulance and camera, as well as imitating the sounds of other birds.
