As a birder, I love this. As someone who appreciates awkward animals, I love this. Thanks for sharing.

These.
Are.
Delightful.

Delightful, I tell you. After 10 seconds of "Walk Like an Egyptian," I was like, OH THIS IS THE BESTEST; NO WAY THE OTHERS WILL MEASURE UP, and yet they did. Endlessly entertaining.

So when looking around to see why they walk this way (which, seems to be to shake worms out of the ground?) I found that another name for this bird is the Timberdoodle — possibly the most adorable name ever for a bird that walks like this!
Also I could watch these videos all day, they're that amusing

The Shine one is one of my favourite things on the internet (even though the link isn't the original)

And yet, no one's done one to that one verse in Fatboy Slim's Weapon of Choice that quotes Dune?
