It's a lyrebird in an Australian zoo. What's so special about this one? Well the bird is creating noise (quite literally) for perfectly mimicking a crying baby.

The Taronga Zoo, where this lyrebird Echo is housed has even filmed it and put the video on Twitter.

"Bet you weren't expecting this wake-up call! You're not hearing things, our resident lyrebird Echo has the AMAZING ability to replicate a variety of calls - including a baby's cry!" says the zoo in its tweet.
