...the manakin bird!
If you're having a cup of tea, put it down before you click on the video.



'Nuff said.

This guy can dance.

I watched a nature program on exotic birds not too long ago, and the show featured the manakin bird. Cute! Has the moon walk down pretty fine.

I'd never heard of the manakin until it was on television this evening, and then of course...well, thank god for YouTube.

I think I was at the club that night. *snerk* Isn't it amazing how little the mating dance differs from species to species. Thanks {{{{hutch0}}}}. Big hugs and grins, Jean Marie

Obviously that's where I was going wrong in my difficult adolescent years...

You gotta love this little bird! I saw it on a St David Attenborough program a year or two ago, but forgot the name of it. Thanks for the reminder and -- as you say -- thank God for YouTube.

It was on QI last night. Well, it was on QI back in April or May, but it was on Dave last night. The reason for the music is a question about who invented the Moonwalk - it was an American dancer from the 20s and 30s called Bill Bailey, but someone said `Michael Jackson.' According to Stephen, Michael Jackson was taught to Moonwalk by Jeffrey Daniel of Shalamar - cue (the other) Bill Bailey and Alan Davies singing `Night To Remember.' And some enterprising YouTuber found the clip and added the song.
Incidentally, I just discovered that someone, somewhere, is posting transcripts of QI. Bless the internet.
