Birds that boogie

Online videos of 'dancing' cockatoos are not flukes but the first genuine evidence of animal dancing.

Philip Ball
SnowballDancing cockatoo Snowball stomps his feet to the beat. Watch him in action here, here and here .A. Patel

When Snowball, a sulphur-crested male cockatoo, was shown last year in a YouTube video apparently moving in time to pop music, he became an Internet sensation. But only now has his performance been subjected to scientific scrutiny. And the conclusion is that Snowball really can dance.

Moonwalking Birds

Not exactly the same as Snowball, as these birds aren't dancing to music, but cool nonetheless.
