Thanks to pigeon for this!

Here's the theoretical explanation:

ROTF!!!!!

That bird has RHYTHM!  He was kicking butt on the downbeat!

And the syncopation and polyrhythms of contrasting feet and head patterns
was outstanding.

First avian rock drummer superstar, IMHO!

Deb,

I know what you mean.

this is one of those days I've been waiting for hours for it to be over so i can go back to bed.

That's incredible! I dunno what's going through that bird's teeny little brain, but it sure looks like he really is dancing and enjoying the music. Hmm not sure I'm buying the story that they haven't somehow encouraged or trained the bird to behave that way. What did wyntre say about why he acted that way? Whatever's going on that's amazing, never seen a bird behave so humanly like that.

Thanks 4C, you're the funny one though - I read that post about your toes Ha! You had me laughing.


Wyntre, I didn't realize that birds have such personality. That bird made me want one, but my husband will shoot me if I come home with one.

Sulphur-crested umbrella cockatoos, Amazons, African Grays and McCaws  as well as some of the other larger parrots have the intelligence of a 3-5 year old kid.

Alex, the African grey, had a vocabulary of over 1000 words.

Just had to correct the impression that there's nothing much in those tiny brains.  

And, as a decades long musician, I can tell you it's impossible to teach most humans to keep a beat like that.   That's natural rhythm if i ever saw it.  *vbg*

My old budgie, who weighed only an ounce and a half, used to do the bird boogie (that's what my family called it).  No foot action, but he was quite a head bobber.  His vocabulary was over 100 words, many sentences, including my full answering machine message plus the sound of the tape rewinding.  Birds are very smart, yet with a budgie it's truly a pea brain.  Maybe the cranial matter is very convoluted, or there are microchips in their heads.  Dunno.  But birds are quite amazing.

That was funny.  Reminded me of my African Grey I used to have.  She was a hoot.. loved the Who album that came out in 80's, and would mimic the cats and knew the dogs by names.  Would also copy the answering machine and rewind.  also the phone ringing.   She could whistle Andy Griffith, and said a few things that we could not figure out for years what it was, but when we did , we ROFL. We had a cross eyed Siamese, and my Ex used to call him Crossed Eyed MF.. and it was so mumbled by the bird, it took a while before we understood.   She was a hoot though, just didn;t like it when we left for work, and would pull out her beautiful red tail feathers,   So I found a retired couple with a bunch of birds who took her in.
