    No music needed! Watch this adorable bird from Taipei, Taiwan, mimicking his human’s fingers as he performs an awesome tap dance with his tiny feet.

    Cockatiels are known for their companionship, as well as for their amazing ability to mimic sounds. While some of them learn to repeat phrases, sing and copy various noises like a ringing phone or a car alarm, this cockatiel named Totoro loves to mimic his owner tapping on a box. Each time his human drums on the box, the bird performs a little dance, until he eventually tires and walks away.
