Moonwalking Manakin Bird – taken from QI

This is the amazing mating ritual of the Red-capped Manakin Bird, which closely resembles Michael Jackson’s famous moonwalk.  I saw it on QI last night on TV and just had to post it.  It’s such a colourful little bird as well and apparently also attracts females by vibrating its wings, much like cicadas do here in Australia.  Enjoy!
