Ed (guest)  -  June 29, 2006, 20:56
Wow, thats an impressive bird. The original conman. The camera and chainsaw noises are spot on!
Brody (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 00:14
Wow ok that is very cool
moa (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 00:47
Hehe best movie this week :D
doubting_thomas (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 01:41
Hmmm, the chainsaw and the camera sounded a bit TOO spot on to me. But if it's real, then the Parrots of the world may be getting replaced soon.

Amazing bird. Yeah the construction crew seemed unbelievable, but if its true, amazing indeed!
 goodshorts  -  June 30, 2006, 04:46
oh dude that can't be real
sdrawkcab (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 05:44

Vortex_ro (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 08:14
dude,the car alarm and the photo tackind sound seemed out of the question,but honestly,a chaisaw?
.......... (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 09:35
Hahaha, at the beggining, the bird sounds like R2-D2
Leo (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 09:47
TOO BAD SOME OF THE SOUNDS ARE JUST SPOOF
_kathla_ (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 13:01
fake.
Notfake (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 14:50
Its all real. Stop not believing everything that happens that seems far fetched!
_Ks (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 14:54
To those who say this is fake , thats david attenborough presenting for the BBC nature documentary planet earth. He and the BBC has nothing to gain from it being faked on a program and any small amount of research would show this, sometimes nature really is this impressive and I would suggest to all impressed by this to watch attenborough's work which is some of the best of the BBC
nicaw (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 18:17
I wanna have this toy.
David (guest)  -  June 30, 2006, 22:06
I like it how in 01:05 it sounds like the bird goes: "here cuckoo" and then whistles...
 Dantalion  -  July 1, 2006, 11:27
It is very real, i didn't believe it either but I looked up this video and it is indeed a documentary from the BBC. Wiki also gives a lot of info, and all the sounds are mentioned there too.
dg (guest)  -  July 1, 2006, 17:36
cool
Woooh (guest)  -  July 2, 2006, 19:32
man, i guess the slogan on animal planet is true, "animals did it first"
wikipedia (guest)  -  July 3, 2006, 08:50
"Lyrebirds render with great fidelity the individual songs of other birds and the chatter of flocks of birds, and also mimic other animals, human noises, machinery of all kinds, explosions and musical instruments. The lyrebird is capable of imitating almost any sound — from a mill whistle to a cross-cut saw, and, not uncommonly, sounds as diverse as chainsaws, car engines and alarms, rifle-shots, camera shutters, dogs barking and crying babies."
Gary Diamond (guest)  -  July 3, 2006, 14:13
Hi folks. I live in Victoria, Australia where these birds live. They live in the bush. I saw one once while on holidays in the country and had no idea what weird bird it could be. Now I know thanks to this vid and I can assure you the noises it makes are real!!! Which is why I freaked out when I saw this amazing bird.
Maggie (guest)  -  July 4, 2006, 23:59
David, you are the best, I think it's cool man ..
Nick (guest)  -  July 5, 2006, 10:44
I have heard and seen Lyrebird displays(on one occasion two mails "competing" with each other) and the video is 100% true. Wait til you hear them mymic a motor bike!
Stuart (guest)  -  July 5, 2006, 19:42
For those who are doubtful I suggest you do a little research into this amazing bird.
Warwick (guest)  -  July 5, 2006, 22:47
In 1065 I namws our Wildlife Rfeuge in Kangraoo Valley NSW CHAKOLA (aboriginal for the Lyre Bird). WONDERFUL are they not ?
 wetdirtmud  -  July 8, 2006, 16:36
The chainsaw thingwas the most impressive
Warwick (guest)  -  July 10, 2006, 09:14
Try again,sorry ! In 1965 I named our Wildlife Refuge (No 207,Kangaroo Valley NSW) CHAKOLA (one aboriginal dialect for Lyre Bird.Wonderful are they Not ?Recently I saw a lyre Bird chasing away a Goanna from the nest.That done a chorus was offered second to none that I had heard. Is not this sound track a little Dysney-ish ? Is that beak really issuing all those sounds or are these superimposed,albeit they are real I agree.'fess up ?
Antonia (guest)  -  July 10, 2006, 09:22
Gee ! What a beaut' film.Menura Novahollandiae does live4 in Vistoria but also NSW and southern Queensalnd.And Kangaroo Valley NSW.Lucky us ?
 Kortisoni  -  July 16, 2006, 15:52
Must have!
Treken (guest)  -  July 20, 2006, 15:53
To all those who think it is fake. You have not done any research on the subject. The bird is very real and does exist. It can do all that this video shows. Do some research befor you state that it is not real. Try GOOGLE>
Kombat (guest)  -  July 26, 2006, 18:02
LISTEN TO THE SOUNDS BEFORE THE CHAIN SAW STUFF AND YOU WILL HEAR LITTLE REVERB. WHEN THE CHAIN SAW STUFF HAPPENS AND THE SAME DISTANCE THERE IS REVERB... UNLESS THIS BIRD CAN SOMEHOW MIMIC REVERB IN HIS SOUNDS (I DOUBT IT) THE LOGGING SOUNDS ARE fake.

Benz0 (guest)  -  August 11, 2006, 18:40
Man ... so many doubters , Attenborough pwnz . What he doesn't know about wildlife aint worth knowing !!! The BBC dont fook about with their documentaries , but I guess many of you dumb-asses wouldn't know that !! :D

That was just so cool! It looks fake, but BBC is right! Thanks, Dantalion.
Niedec (guest)  -  September 23, 2006, 10:09
Uhh, Kombat? The bird is in a forest. A forest CLEARING. With trees around it. Of course there's going to be reverb. The bird doesn't have to mimic it. It occurs naturally in the background.
james (guest) (guest)  -  October 6, 2006, 21:08
thats a pretty impressive bird...if its real that is! can anyone give me proof that this is real cos im finding it very hard to beleive. the chainsaw bit is just unatural!!!
james (guest)  -  October 6, 2006, 21:09

jenny (guest)  -  October 6, 2006, 21:12

Woz (guest)  -  November 28, 2006, 12:47
If she can mimmick Pamela Anderson, she'd be a fit bird.
TimF (guest)  -  March 2, 2007, 07:44
Lyrebirds are native to Southeastern Australia and are reknown as master mimics. I live just outside Melbourne and the lyrebird lives in the nearby Dandenong ranges. The BBC documentary and David Attenborough are absolutely accurate and correct - the lyrebird does everything that is represented in this clip from Planet Earth.
mahmud (guest)  -  April 9, 2007, 05:26
ooo very nice and good. Thanks you
 bob  -  October 1, 2007, 00:53
sweeeet I wonder how many girls I would get if I tried that! ;)
 Matzi  -  November 26, 2007, 23:36
This is as true it can be. You doubting fu*kers can go to hell or look up some other information. Attenborough sure is one of the best at BBC. All of my respect to him _/
athlon  -  September 24, 2009, 15:13

Zuzanna (guest)  -  September 16, 2014, 07:14
Please do let us know if you have arranged any UK wrskohops... I would be very interested... there are several show happening in Harrogate in Sept a Quilt show.. in Oct. Fashion & Embroidery & the Knitting & Stitching Show.. which also takes place in London/Dublin/Birmingham.. but maybe you are to late for these... or did you just want to do more local wrskohops? Maybe I should enquire at my local guild & patchwork group to see if anything could be arranged? but this would mean you traveling up to North Yorkshire... would this be to far from Cambridge?hoping to hear from [email protected]

Could you write about Phcyiss so I can pass Science class?
Ayano (guest)  -  September 18, 2014, 10:52
I know that overwhelming etmioon Geraldine. It often confuses me because it really is sadness, grief and joy all rolled into one. I am so grateful for the joy part as it enables me to enjoy the tears. xoxoxo
