Betcha Didn’t Know – Parrots have great rhythm

parrotBetcha didn’t know…

parrots have great rhythm.  Two studies by Harvard University and the Neurosciences Institute in San Diego found that parrots, like humans, have the ability to move with the beat of music.  It was previously thought that only humans could dance in rhythm – but when parrots listened to music, they happily bobbed their heads according to the tempo.  When the rhythm was changed, the parrots didn’t miss a step – they switched up their dance moves to keep in sync. The Harvard scientists watched YouTube clips of dancing parrots to help with their research.
