Moonwalking birds. This is an awesome video of a Manakin bird doing the Michael Jackson thing.

I find Ms. Bostwick's mating dance to be strangely compelling.

That is the most wonderful and charming thing I have seen in quite a while. Brought such a smile, I'm sorry if it's a repost but you know what.. that original link.. to borrow a gamer phrase, "TLDR", or "Too Long Didnt Read", I would never have seen it. This... this however... Moonwalking!!

Biologists and nature folks have the best dang job.

You know what? I'm an asshole. monju wasn't complaining about a redundant link, he was very helpfulling pointing out an abundant trove of information he himself had posted. I'm sorry monju.

Someone must have been watching Nature last night :).

Just don't call yourself out on MeTa Cavalier and we'll all be good

That was perfect. Just what I needed to perk up a slow Monday afternoon. Thanks to dov3 for linking the "moonwalk" and to monju_bosatsu for the previous post which is full of great information on manakins.

Heh, I saw that on PBS last night. I was expecting a lot less...pretty awesome.

Darn! I did not know it was a double post.

Yes, I saw it yesterday on PBS and I thought of y'all guys.

Obviously this is evidence of intelligent design.

Michael Jackson is God.

Gotta say, though, that it's more of a James Brown shuffle than an MJ moonwalk.

...which is to say, "better".

I feel good. I feel better now. I feel better than Kim Bostwick.

The woman in the video looks disturbingly like Weird Al Yankovic.

This is even better than the Plague in WoW link.

Actually, that's a backslide, not a moonwalk.
