Wen Hao Lee, a visiting student from Malaysia, may have found the most talented songbird ever in Healesville Sanctuary, Australia. Its laser noise may sound threatening, but its beautiful tail and pleasant chirping show it means no harm.

Wen Hao Lee told StoryFul that the "lyrebird was the most amazing songbird I had ever seen apart from Kookaburra. I was standing before this bird waiting for the surprise as suggested on my visitor's brochure. All of a sudden, it just tweaked (sic) sound that was beyond my comprehension."

Though the video was shot in December 2013, it's starting to go viral now.
