Similarly, injured birds that temporarily or permanently lack flight skills or young birds that have not yet learned to fly are not considered terrestrial. Neither were they able to prove that a lyrebird chick had been a pet, although they acknowledged compelling evidence on both sides of the argument.

Other types of terrestrial birds that are less well known but no less ground-loving are: While some of these birds are fully flightless, others are easily capable of flight but generally prefer to stay on the ground. The species of tinamous range in size from that of the dwarf tinamou (Taoniscus nanus)—about 15 cm (6 inches) long and 150 grams (5 ounces) in weight—to about 50 cm (20 inches) long and 2 kg (4 pounds) in larger species, such as the great tinamou (Tinamus major). Lyrebirds render with great fidelity the individual songs of other birds and the chatter of flocks of birds, and also mimic other animals such as koalas and dingoes. Terrestrial birds are acutely vulnerable to habitat loss, as they are less capable of relocating to new ranges if suitable habitat is destroyed. While this is largely true, there are several types of flightless birds that aren't properly considered terrestrial.

During this peak they may sing for four hours of the day, almost half the hours of daylight. A terrestrial bird is a type of bird that stays primarily on the ground, not only foraging on the ground but also generally nesting and roosting on the ground or very low in shrubbery or brush. The lyrebird has been featured as a symbol and emblem many times, especially in New South Wales and Victoria (where the superb lyrebird has its natural habitat), and in Queensland (where Albert's lyrebird has its natural habitat). Instead, the male lyrebird's tail is fanned over the lyrebird during courtship display, with the tail completely covering his head and back—as can be seen in the image in the 'breeding' section of this page, and also the image of the 10-cent coin, where the superb lyrebird's tail (in courtship display) is portrayed accurately. libutron: Banded Woodpecker - Picus miniaceus -... yellow-naped woodpecker (photo by the hems family).
