Cockatiel Choreographics

As it turns out, 14 parrot species are "scientifically proven" dancers. My mother's Cockatiel may be number 15.

In addition to the traditional choreographic reportoire including claw tapping and head bobbing, Tookie has got some mad wing-spanning skills on the dance . . . err . . . knee. Perhaps Nymphicus hollandicus could be number 15 on the list of parrot species who have got rhythm? In any case, he earns extra points for original style, and the judges approve of his coach’s choice in music.
