Chook the Superb Lyrebird lives at Adelaide Zoo and he really is an amazing creature.
Recently, there was some construction work going on at the zoo and Chook became an expert at copying the sounds he was hearing.
Have a look at the You Tube video!
Male superb lyrebirds make these amazing calls to attract a mate or ward off their competition.
You can hear Brett, the senior bird keeper talk some more about Chook here and hear some more of his repertoire (listen out for the car struggling to start, very funny!).
