‘We were in New Zealand and we went on a bike ride. And there were these birds that, like, were making this crazy, robotic sound and it was so sick,’ she said. 

The Ocean Eyes singer went on to discuss the caw of Aussie crows as she perfectly mimicked the sound.

‘I do have a recording from the last time I was here and it’s called “Sydney birds”,’ Billie said.

‘And it’s from 2019. And I was standing on the balcony in the hotel room. And I was just going [crow noise]. I’m telling you, dude, it sounds exactly like that.’

Billie started the Australian leg of her tour on Tuesday, kicking off a total of three shows at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena.

She previously told Stellar magazine she was ‘not built’ for fame.

‘I’m pretty good at handling the fame,’ Billie said. ‘Of course I’m not built for it – nobody is. But I feel like I’m kind of meant to do this.’

She is often hailed by fans for speaking openly about her mental health struggles and was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome at age 11.
