Shake Your Tail Feather!

Scientists have discovered that birds have a remarkable sense of rhythm! Two reports published in Current Biology suggest that parrots in particular have a near perfect sense of timing. It was previously thought that only humans could get in the groove.

This is obviously an important piece of research but it’s also a good excuse to watch some very funny dancing parrot videos!

So find out more about the research here:
