Hearing Chainsaws in the Forest? Could Just Be A Lyre Bird.
Posted by Richard Conniff on February 16, 2014
This brief video may not look like much at first, just David Attenborough creeping through another forest in pursuit of another curious creature. This time, though, it’s Australia superb lyre bird, which he touts as having what may be “the most elaborate, the most complicated, the most beautiful song” in the world.
It doesn’t even sound like much at first.
But hang on.
And, oh, sorry to say, but if you are in a forest anywhere other than southeastern Australia, that sound you’re hearing is in fact a chainsaw.
