Saw a Lyrebird yesterday

Went to an animal sanctuary here in Melbourne yesterday, we were taking my visiting sister in law to see a few things. No real life lessons, just thought it was really cool.

We went into the Lyrebirds forest exhibit and we saw a male lyrebird "presenting" Which means they throw their tail over their heads and start this amazing mating call. They do their own call, but also mimic the calls of other birds, and noises they hear in the forest. Apparently the more diverse calls they use the more attractive they are. This thing sounded like C3PO. Anyways thought I would share a file and a picture, it was very cool.
