The David Attenborough Lyrebird was a wild one at Kinglake.

Cheers Jeff.

As I recall HANZAB suggests it may take a lyrebird 6 months to learn a call.

I read it idly at my Dad's place a year or so ago so more than likely my 
memory is faulty.

It was a bit cynical re the bird in David Attenborough's Life Of Birds 
mimicking chainsaws, cameras and car alarms, as apparently this bird was in 
captivity (I'm guessing Healesville?)
