Gangnam Bird Style

Watch this cockatoo dance to a popular song, and learn why parrots dance.

BirdChannel Editors

Parrots are known for their dancing skills, from the famous Snowball, to the thousand of parrots dancing away in YouTube videos.  A parrot's ability to move to a beat may have grown out of the ability to imitate sounds, according to Aniruddh Patel, Ph.D, Senior Fellow in Theoretical Neurobiology at the Neurosciences Institute in San Diego. He co-authored a study to see if animals are capable of synchronized movement.

Perhaps parrots dance for the same reason we do — because it's fun!
