Chook the Lyrebird

(YouTube link)

You might recall Sir David Attenborough introducing us to the lyrebird, a master of mimcry (and later the wonderful remix). Chook the lyrebird lives at the Adelaide Zoo. After a period of construction at the zoo, Chook was able to recreate the sounds of hammers, saws, and power tools exactly. Link -via Arbroath

Reminds me of when I lived in Phoenix. I'd regularly hear birds that could imitate car alarms. Not just the sound of the alarm, but the entire sequence the alarm goes through, in appropriate order.
