No other bird on the planet can do what the lyrebird can do.

In 1998, wildlife filmmaker Nick Hayward captured the The Life of Birds sequence, in which Australia’s most creative song-bird imitates the sound of a chainsaw chopping down a tree. The bird was filmed in captivity, but ever since then, the world of birding enthusiasts have wondered, do lyrebirds imitate man-made sounds in the wild?

This question begins a journey deep into the native forests, where a cast of characters help us not only understand the sophistication and complex artistry of the lyrebird, but what its message may be for humanity.

Directed by Mark Pearce.
