Birds might not be able to hold a full conversation with humans, but they certainly can communicate well.

Parrots can learn a varying degree of different words and phrases, which they will then repeat often. They can even understand when you’re asking them a question.

The lyrebird might not “talk” exactly, but they can mimic sounds so perfectly, they don’t really need to use words.

The Australian bird is known for being able to mimic man-made sounds nearly pitch-perfect. In a video shot by Wen Hao Lee, one lyrebird got to show off his impressive pipes.

The bird made a few different sounds for Wen, who was visiting the area from Malaysia. The most recognizable sound made was a car alarm.

The little lyrebird also sounded like a laser, which was a bit terrifying of a sound. However, as scary as the bird might sound, his pleasant chirping shows he means no harm, and his beautiful tail is a sight to behold.

If you love to see birds interacting with humans, you’ll enjoy this video of Einstein the parrot showing off all the imitations that he can do.

Please SHARE this loud lyrebird with all of your friends and family members who won’t believe that a bird can make these kinds of sounds!
