Bird that can mimic noises it hears in the forest

I found this video today and I'm amazed. I don't know what kind of bird this is but it can imitate the calls of other kinds of birds as well as other sounds (like a camera clicking, etc). It's really amazing how exact the noises are Just thought I'd share:

If I watch this with the volume turned up and some ugly witch face pops up on the screen and screams.......well, I'm really going to hate you!

Haha, I HATE when people trick me into watching one of those videos where something pops up and almost gives me a heart attack. I wouldn't do that to you guys

I haven't listened to it yet, but birds can be incredible with their sounds. For a long time one of mine would mimic the sound of my telephone ringing. Everytime I turned on the water in the tub it would make that sound. I'd turn off the water and run toward the phone. Nothing. I don't know how many times he did it before I got wise to it!!

Birds are so cool. I want an amazon of some sort now because they sing. My eclectus will talk your ear off but I sing to him all the time and he never understands what I'm doing. (He'll sometimes say "HUH?" like I'm a big dummy.)

Thanks for sharing the website. I'm looking forward to listening to it and sharing it with others.
