Lyre bird

Recommended Posts

Wow! Loved the lyre birds songs - especially the motorised camera shutter and chain saws!


We saw real lyre birds in the wild just a couple of weeks ago, in the Dandenongs near Melbourne. One of my nieces pointed out 'chickens' in the path in front of us - and she was nearly right - they were a pair of lyre birds, & they were scratching & pecking just like chickens! Didnt hear any songs from them though.

How many Lyre birds can you get in an Eglu! I'd love one!!


But they'd drive you mad imitating the barking dog next door and the phone ringing! My folks used to have a starling in their garden, which mimiced their trimphone - they were always rushing in doors to answer it!
