Bird imitates train sound

This video is about a big flock of starlings in Britain.

Translated from Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad today:

A starling which dwells at Rotterdam Central Station fools railway passengers. The bird can imitate train sounds; so, many a traveler has been wrongfooted, the Algemeen Dagblad reports.

Eg, 25-year-old Samantha from Driebergen thought she heard train doors. Her train came in on track 9, but before it stopped she already heard the hissing sound of doors opening.

According to Moeliker [of the local natural history museum] starlings are city birds and good imitators of ambient noise.
