Did you know there is a bird that makes baby crying sound
SYDNEY: It is widely believed that only parrots can mimic human sounds, but a bird housed in Australia’s Taronga Zoo can make many more sounds, including the cry of a newborn baby.
Sydney-based Taronga Zoo has been closed to the public for the past several months due to the Corona epidemic, but zoo staff are on duty to care for the animals and birds there.
The same zoo also has an Australian bird called “Superb Lyrebird” whose scientific name is Menura novaehollandiae.
It has an amazing ability to learn from its environment and to imitate others, the bird is exceptionally good at doing this.
A few days ago, the staff of the Taronga Zoo were surprised to see that the bird was screaming like a human baby.
A staff member immediately filmed the scene with his smartphone camera, which was also shared on the zoo’s official Twitter account.
Bet you weren’t expecting this wake-up call! You’re not hearing things, our resident lyrebird Echo has the AMAZING ability to replicate a variety of calls – including a baby’s cry!

The video has so far been viewed by over half a million social media users and has received hundreds of comments.
The sound of the superb lyrebird in the video is similar to the sound of a human baby crying that a Twitter user even wrote that “hearing this sound, mothers will go out to look for their infants.”
