Parrots and cockatoos are incredibly intelligent creatures. They have the ability to learn very quickly, and have the awesome skill to mimic speech and sounds that they hear around them every day. Parrots also fall under the list of very few animals that can recognize rhythm and actually hold it. That, combined with their wonderful ability to dance, can create some amazing moments indeed! The cockatoo in the following video is a stunning disco dancer who isn’t afraid to show off his moves!

Disco music was in its peak back in the 70s. It was a fun movement, although the trend didn’t last long. It paved the way for musical anthems like “Staying Alive” by the Bee Gees, “That’s The Way I Like It” by KC and the Sunshine Band, and “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme” by ABBA. Peaches and Herb also contributed to the disco scene with hits like “Shake Your Groove Thing”, and the cockatoo in this video definitely loves that!

When Louie the cockatoo heard the funky tunes of “Shake Your Groove Thing”, the infectious beat took a hold of him right away. Every time he hears it, he breaks into a dance right there on the spot! Just watch how he bobs his head up and down and follows the rhythm perfectly! His owner couldn’t help but film the whole thing. After all, it’s not every single day that you get to see a cockatoo shake his feathers to such a classic!

Towards the end of the song, he even sings along to it. He definitely was having a ball dancing like that!
