Wow! Those are some pretty cool birds. I`d love to go see them (I wonder if you`re actually allowed to go and see them), especially the tap dancing one.

That was friggin hilarious. Those birds are incredible though. If someone said that birds like that existed, I wouldn`t believe them even if they paid me.

Isn`t it funny that some species like these birds have to try to impress the females? And then the female decides whether or not she wants to mate?

Meanwhile, other species such as dogs will hump anything (including a human leg) whenever they feel like it, regardless of what anyone else may feel.

Seriously though, If I had seen this act in nature, I would have thought the bird was rabid.
