Bird with the biggest playlist

Things have been a bit busy lately but I wanted to share with you this incredible video of the lyre bird. Evolution has at least as much to do with impressing your date as it does with survival, and this bird does so by accumulating the biggest 'playlist' it can. Listen in as this male composes a love song which includes not only the calls of other birds, but also human machinery such as cameras and chain saws.
