So Cool! My favorite local bird is the Catbird which can imitate several bird species. Thought I had a crazy variety at my house one morning, turned out to be one little old Catbird.

I used to have a houseful of parrots...one of my birds used to immitate a ticking grandfather clock. I never had a ticking clock in my home so it had to have been something he'd heard prior to living in my house. He drove me crazy. LOL I also had one that would immitate a human sneeze. If I sneezed, he'd "sneeze" right after me. If I faked sneezing, he wouldn't echo me. He seemed to know the difference between real and fake. LOL.

My bf's grandmother has a parrot and it mocks everything. When she had leg surgery it started saying 'oh my leg' and now says it all the time.

Ooh, a Lyre bird! We used to hear them "chainsawing" away in the bush when I was little.
