Lyre Bird "Chook" and a few power tools....

There is a Lyre Bird at my local zoo (Adelaide) that has taken to imitating the construction workers and their tools which are being used to construct a new panda exhibit nearby. 

The sounds you should be listening for are as follows:
Electric drill
Handsaw
“Hello Chook”
Chainsaw
Water drops
Truck reversing
Post-mix drink being poured
2 way radio chatter
Jackhammer

It makes bird sounds too:
Bird sounds
Laughing Kookaburra
Regent honeyeater
Yellow tailed black cockatoo
Flock of rainbow lorikeets
Eastern whipbird
King Parrot
Marpie Lark
Australian Magpie
Noisy Miner
Red Wattlebird
Blackbird
Pied Currawong
Bush Stone-Curlew
