Natural Struttin'

...and Moonwalkin'. One cool bird. Seriously.

IMPORTANT UPDATE!! Joated, over at Compass Points has found a longer version of the video and the name of the species. So, for Mark, the Bandit, and the Lizard, go check it out and see if more is better. Thanks, Joated. Your tireless investigation has brought orinthetic joy to us all!

Very cool. I got a kick out of that cute little guy. The woman, OTOH, she should save it for the Gong Show.

That was hilarious!

Randy said...

Any idea what show that came from? She's so nerdy she might be fun to watch in larger doses. :-)

Erica said...

I mailed my Mom a link to this post; it really cracked me up. I hope that's cool. My Mom's good peeps.

No idea what show, guys. The girl is rather geeky, but apparently that's a plus for Randy...

:o)

That was a major hoot. I wanna go clubbin' with that birdie.

Oh. My. God! Nature never ceases to make me smile.

Mark said...

She just looks like the type that would be a lot of fun once you got her to come out of her shell...so I'm with Randy on that one.

That bird was cool.

Funny bird! How does it do that? You can't even see its feet move! I listened to it twice, but I didn't hear what kind of bird it was.

To a geek, the clip's only a teaser. Too many unanswered questions.

What kind of bird is it? Where's its habitat? Are those lianas in the background? Do I see ficus leaves? What's the girl's phone number?

Mark said...

I see my shell joke went unnoticed...

Joan of Argghh! said...

Not unnoticed. Ignored.

:o)

Irony is its own reward...

THAT is just too cool!

Found out it's a red-capped manikin (Pipra mentalis) from Central America.
