The Lyrebird is a ground-dwelling Australian bird, most notable for his superb ability to mimic natural and artificial sounds from their environment, and the striking beauty of the male bird's huge tail when it is fanned out in courtship display. Lyrebirds have unique plumes of neutral-coloured tailfeathers and are among Australia's best-known native birds.

A Lyrebird's song is one of the more distinctive aspects of its behavioural biology. During a peak they may sing for four hours of the day. The song is a mixture of elements of its own song and any number of other mimicked songs and noises.

The Lyrebird is capable of imitating almost any sound, and they have been recorded mimicking human sounds such as a mill whistle, a cross-cut saw, chainsaws, car engines and car alarms, fire alarms, rifle-shots, camera shutters, dogs barking, crying babies, music, mobile phone ring tones, and even the human voice.
