VIDEO OF THE DAY – Dancing Parrots

Swine flu, credit crunch, dodgy politicians, doom, gloom…

Thank goodness for The New Scientist, who announced this weekend that they’ve completed research into a question that has surely been bugging us all for decades: have parrots got rhythm?

Apparently the answer is yes, and they’re the only other species apart from our good selves who can dance to music.

Of course, that doesn’t take into account most people’s parents at the average family wedding – a spectacle which would invariably cast something of a shadow over whether humans can move to the beat either.

They really should have used The Birdy Song too, shouldn't they...?
