Australia’s lyrebird got its name from the shape of its tale, which is said to resemble the lyre, an ancient Greek musical instrument mastered most notably by the god Apollo.
But the lyrebird could also have been labeled the liar bird for its masterful mimicry.
The lyrebird (found in the same part of Australia from which Kangaeroo hails) can copy just about any sound, including human voices, with near perfection.
Lyrebirds are just one of myriad birds found in Australia.
Birdlife down under is amazing! Birds come in all shapes, sizes, colors and types.
Nothing can beat the amazing cacophony of bird noises that greet people as they wake in the morning in country areas.
