More Annoyed than Amused

Snowball

Posted by parsingtime on May 5, 2009

The Economist had an interesting story about Snowball the dancing Cockatoo. Basically the gist of the story is that Parrots can not only mimic words and phrases but also rhythm and dancing.  They proved this scientifically which is why the article appeared in the magazine and of course after I read about Snowball I had to go check him out.

Here he is with his head banging version of Another One Bites the Dust. You can check out his version of Backstreet Boy’s Everybody  on youtube.
