A Ballet Bird

Super random, but this bird does a “ballerina-like” dance (according to Wikipedia), forming what looks suspiciously like a tutu from its feathers, and that’s really cool.

It’s a six-plumed bird of paradise, or a parotia. Here are some pictures I took (of the tv screen, lol):




Or just watch the video (I first watched it on the show Planet Earth.)

The whole time I was thinking ‘Someone’s got to choreograph a ballet about this! Instead of Swan Lake it’s Parotia Forest!’
