nature's living tape recorders may be telling us secrets - top car alarms
In the 1930 s, there was a bird, an Australian bird, prepared for a human lady.
The lady's name is Lady. Wilkinson (
I can't find her name)
She lives in Australia.
So are the birds.
She comes to eat every day.
She named it James ".
"When James, the bird, decided to propose to his wife.
Wilkinson, who built a mound in her backyard, stood on it and sang. Mrs.
Naturally, Wilkinson was flattered and invited some human friends to listen.
According to the people present, James once sang for 43 minutes.
Because James is a wonderful seven-mouth bird.
That's what they actually call it)
His songs include the sounds he hears in the forests and suburbs where he lives.
Lyrebirds is probably the most gifted imitation in the world, according to Wikipedia, The Love Song james gave to Mrs.
Wilkinson sang a laugh from cokubra, the cry of a parrot.
Bird, eight brother, parrot, car horn, rock
Crushed machines and jacks.
These birds are amazing.
If you 've never heard of a lyrebird imitating the chainsaw perfectly, let me introduce you to the excellent lyrebird Chook who now lives at Adelaide Zoo.
While the panda show was under construction, Jok lived in a cage, so that's probably how he learned to reproduce the hammer, drill and car alarm perfectly.
Many birds can imitate sounds, but they are masters.
They are live recorders of nature, and sometimes their songs are annoying.
For example, when the BBC's David Attenborough met a lyrebird deep in the Australian Forest, the bird sang not only 20 other forest birds, it's also a perfect imitation of Lin Nong and their chainsaw, and they're obviously getting closer and closer.
The bird sounded a car alarm.
In fact, the birds recorded the sound of their own habitat destruction.
Ironically, they do so in their mating songs.
Is Lyrebirds an accidental historian?
Of course, birds do not remember where they heard them.
It's just a noise for them.
But do scientists want to know how big these sounds are?
Lyrebirds can live for 40 to 50 years.
On 1969, Neville Fenton, an Australian park ranger, recorded a song that was very like a flute, a flute played by humans.
After many investigations, sir.
Fenton found that a farmer/flute player lived near the park 30 years ago and played a tune for his pet lyrebird.
The lyrebird downloaded the song and was allowed to live in the wild in the park.
The phrases in these flute songs are clearly part of the local album.
A scholar named Norman Robinson found that the song sung by wild birds in 1969 was a modified version of two popular songs "Keel Row" and "Mosquito Dance" in the 1930 s.
Blogger Alexander Trevi wrote in a charming blog he trimmed: "Listening to record birds singing may be like listening to very old tapes.
When you go to the zoo and hear a seven-mouth bird humming like a saw, are you listening to what happened yesterday or is this bird telling you more disturbingWell, maybe.
I don't know what the lady is.
Wilkinson felt it in her serenade, but when I heard the bird joke from Adelaide Zoo making the perfect human whistle on YouTube, so it was a very real feeling, like there was a guy walking behind him outside the camera, I know I heard the sound of a bird from a very specific person who used to blow absolutelyWho was he? Or she? I don't know.
The bird didn't know, but it was amazing to hear it.
