More usually known by its Maori name, the Tui has twin voice-boxes, and an unusual song.
They are also remarkable imitators. I'm pretty sure these vids weren't faked, but I do know there was at least one tui around our bach which could do a fair imitation of the lawnmower. Why it thought imitating the lawnmower was a good idea we'll never know.
