Parrot freestyle?

On Monday night, the minute Thomas walked in the door from work, Stella flew over and landed on his foot.The parrots and I had been in the middle of yet another Michael Jackson dance party, so he joined in, and for a few moments, they appeared to be dancing together.

Thomas and I have seen demonstrations of canine freestyle dancing at pet expos when we've been representing the rescue where we volunteer. I told him he needs to see if there's something similar with parrots; if not maybe he could start one. He just laughed at me and said I was crazy.

I think it's kind of hard to see from this angle, but she was lifting up her feet at the same time he was. I'm not sure if she thought she was going to step up, or if this was some kind of dance on her part?

It looks like an instructional video for how to teach your bird to dance. Cute!

Looks like a good imitation of the Michael Jackson "moon walk"! You go, Stella!
