Lyrebird does sound effects

A male lyrebird in the Adelaide (South Australia) zoo has learned to mimic the noises of nearby construction work -- hammering, sawing, drilling, etc. -- mixed in with what sounds like Tarzan movie sound effects.

Incidentally, while calling this sound effects bird "superb" wouldn't be inaccurate, "superb lyrebird" is actually the name of the type of bird in question.
