David Attenborough “Lyrebird” video remixed

There’s a remixed version of the internet classic “Lyrebird” video where host David Attenborough whispers some commentary about a clever bird who essentially hijacks the songs of other birds in his mating calls — but also mimics sounds it hears.. car alarms, lumberjacks firing up their chainsaws, etc.

While this is not especially newsworthy, it should be noted that the second version below is a hacked version and the mimicry other than those portions found in the original are not actual recordings, they are video edits created for the purposes of a joke. However, the video seems to have caught on out of context and many people now believe the Lyrebird mimics the Seinfeld theme song. Oh dear.
