Frosty Shaking Its Tail Feather

So - I posted Snowball the parrot, the subject of a very scientific experiment to see if birds can dance. But Snowball might well just have two left claws when compared to a bird named Frosty.

Here's a clip of Frosty the parrot shaking its tail feather to Ray Charles and the Blues Brothers' Twist It (Shake Your Tail Feather): Link [embedded YouTube clip, video by Karla K. Larsson)

Parrots are cool.

A mates galah's favourite toy is hoses. No hose within a two house radius is safe. I am sure the neighbours think it must be local teenagers. Chews about 5cm's off and brings it home to chew into a million pieces.

Very friendly and affectionate but do NOT get between it and its piece of hose.

He has given up and just sweeps a lot.

I see that now the dinosaurs have evolved the ability to dance. Now all they need to do is learn how to get me a beer from the fridge.


I accidently trip the auto mod all the time, don't worry about it.

I think the remarkable thing about Snowball was that he/she seemed to be genuinely dancing to the music, and that it was a spontaneous, untrained behavior. They changed the music on Snowball and he/she followed the rhythm.

This bird seems not only trained, but coached from off-camera.
