This Cockatoo Has NEVER Heard “Uptown Funk” Before, But When It Starts Playing? I LOST It!

Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” was one of the biggest hits of 2015, in part because of Bruno Mars being the lead singer. This famous song is still making people dance today, and their pets too, apparently. The infectious beats are too good to pass up! There are a lot of covers and parodies on this song as well. The video below features a dance cover that will leave you smiling from ear to ear!

This was performed by Jaz the cockatoo! According to Jaz’s owner, he prefers funk and this was the first time Jaz heard the song. But his reaction? Pure GOLD! Cockatoos and parrots are one of the few birds that are known to recognize and maintain rhythm. Just take this little guy for example! It is heartwarming to see him enjoy himself, isn’t it?

This bird not only has some of the best dance moves I’ve ever seen on a bird, he even got his feathers into the rhythm! He spreads his wings and the long feathers on his head stand straight up. He’s ducking and bowing and bebopping to the music with all he’s got.

But it gets even better than his dancing. At one point, it seems this bird discovers the camera. He walks right up to it, seems to smile, and then really goes to town dancing to this song. He is highly entertaining and a must see.
