If you've enjoyed a glimpse of Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair" video, then this should be extra entertaining. A talented bird has some of the young superstar's moves down already? Unreal. Not sure it's as cute as the original, but be the judge of that and check it out below:
Mmmm, there's something utterly heartwarming about baby animals getting fed . . . and this bird looks to be enjoying that meal as well. Check out more pictures to learn all about the species both in the wild and in captivity.
I don't normally listen to NPR, but I caught a story the other day about animals that dance and just couldn't turn it off. In conjunction with the radio program, they put together a video on their website where I could see some of the animals that were featured on the show. One of the amazing dancing animals was a white cockatoo named Snowball. Unable to tear myself away from Snowball's smooth moves, I searched and found tons of videos of him on YouTube, including an appearance on David Letterman, and a hilarious Japanese game show. Snowball sure gets around! Check him out in action below, and then tell me: Do your pets dance?
No birds were harmed in the shooting of these pictures – after all, they're the well-trained professionals of Bird Island in Shenyang, China. The parrots, cockatoos, and other fluttering fellas perform heroic sport feats. From bowling and bicycling to weight lifting and tightrope walking, it's all there. If you've got a pet bird at home – maybe a non-Wordy Birdy – do you think your pal would perform this way . . . for lots of treats, of course?

See? You don't have to be a dog or cat to be the Pet Pic of the Day! Take our friend Scarlet, for example. She's an African Grey Parrot who loves to hang upside down — she's quite the acrobat!
Congrats to Scarlet and mizteriuz for being chosen as our Pet Pic of the Day! Don't forget to submit your favorite photos to our Pet Pics group — you could see your furry or feathered friends on the pages of PetSugar!
This genius parrot has somehow picked up the haunting and eerie Kill Bill theme song from Quentin Tarantino's film starring Uma Thurman. So instead of hearing cussing and fart noises, this feathered bird is around film buffs! So freaking cool. I love him.
Forget "ringing" like a cell phone — this bird has even more amazing things come out of his mouth. When the African grey parrot was found and rescued two weeks ago in Nagareyama, Japan, the officials promptly brought him into the police station and were about to start the interrogation process. Turns out this bird was just not talking . . . hey, maybe he was waiting for his lawyer! What happened next? Find out when you read more
Now sometimes I jump when my own phone rings, but imagine jumping when you hear your phone ring, only to realize that it never rang at all! This bird, Billy, is the culprit behind that very scenario with his owner, Stuart McNae, both seen here. The Blue-fronted Amazon Parrot is able to perfectly learn and mimic ringtones . . . so perfectly, in fact, that his owner has had to change the mobile phone's sound five times already! To make matters worse, Billy also likes to wait until Stuart leaves the room to copy the sound, and even imitates laughter when he dashes back to answer. The bird has already learned the Nokia theme, Lou Bega’s Mambo Number 5, the BBC Match of the Day tune, Soul Limbo by Booker T and the MGs and Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry . . . I can't think of trickier tones to test such a qualified creature with, can you?
Show tunes? Current pop hits? Nope, the Alabama Fight Song.
