BBC Nature Documentary: The Life of Birds

If you're patient enough and persevere to the end of the above clip (just under 3 minutes), you hear this amazing lyre bird imitating all kinds of birds... AND the sounds of cameras, car alarms, and chainsaws!

 David Attenborough's The Life of Birds is a wonderful series that we love to re-watch every now and again. With 9.3 stars out of 10 on Internet Movie Database, apparently we aren't the only ones enjoying this series.

Here's a link to the pbs website with more info, examples, and classroom resources.

  1. We had to go look up the lyre bird - we thought maybe this was another BBC April fool's joke, like the flying penguins :) What an amazing bird!

  2. Ha, and the joke would have been on me too... I'm assuming you found out that it wasn't an April fools joke? I hope ;-)

    Thanks for commenting Susan and Almost Unschooling!

  3. I think we watched it from Netflix, and I agree it's AWESOME!

  4. Some day I may even look into Netflix--everyone talks about it, but I don't even know how it works! Thanks Ticia.
