    I bought Party Girl for W as a birthday gift a few years ago. She was a budgie. (Ill-tempered little beast.) This was before we put my mother in the home, so Lucifer T. Cat was still with her. When we let the bird out of her cage, she'd perch on the CD storage rack or on top of a speaker and just bob her little head off to whatever was playing.
    As much as we hated each other, we seemed to have a mutual enemy in George Jones. (I detest cowboy music.) No matter where we placed that CD in the rack, Party Girl would find it and **** on it. :biggrin:

    Interesting, Fuzzy. I don't usually pay much attention to nature stuff, but that was pretty cool.

    Absolutely fascinating! The sounds that lyre bird makes are almost unbelievable.

    Astro, your second link is dead.

    This seems to me to raise the question : have they previously seen humans dancing ?

    I fixed the second link. It's about a lyre bird that mimics chainsaw, camera, music, DJ.

    I've seen them in person. They are intereting creatures - and noisy too.


    Last night I hear an owl making a sound like a chainsaw. I awoke from sleep thinking "who in the heck is using a chain saw at 3:30 in the morning".
