Menura novaehollandiae


Lyrebirds are among Australia's best-known native birds. As well as their extraordinary mimicking ability, lyrebirds are notable because of the striking beauty of the male bird's huge tail when it is fanned out in display; and also because of their courtship display

Just recently I read that they are studying this bird in greater detail. He could be an useful link to the past ,because of his ability to remember and mimic bird sounds. In fact Ii was just trying to find the link that I had saved. I will post it as soon as I find it.
