Parrots can dance, evidence on youtube

Someone on my friend list posted this video of a cockatoo dancing to the Backstreet Boys. Seriously, this video rules. Watch it. I post it to highlight a recent study that shows parrots and other mimicking birds can actually synchronize with music, that is they can carry a beat or rhythm. And what did these Harvard University researchers use as their data? YouTube videos of birds rocking out to music. :) Good stuff, people, good stuff.

That is *awesome*. I loved the headbanging at the end. What fun Snowball is having!

A friend of mine used to have a fish who would dance to swing music. I happened to notice it one day when I was over at her house and pointed it out to her. That guy had mad skillz.
