Dancing!

Today I found my 'zon wants none of it! We turned up the music and my wife, kiddo, myself, and the G2 all had a good time. The 'zon just looked at me like i from another planet and the Military just paced on the playstand.

Do any of your 'zons dance? any subspecies more than others?

Re: Dancing!

My BFA *LOVES* to dance. He is especially fond of the *worst* kind of late 90's boy band pop music (can you say the backstreet boys, 98 degrees and n-sync? lol). I think that must've been the kind of music he 'heard around' as a young bird, since he would have been hatched in 98/99. Who knows, but he *GOES NUTS* over it and starts spinning/hopping in circles, whooshes his head around, flares his wings, rolls his head around under his wings....
I think out neighbors thought we were a bunch of loonies at our old apartment, listening to crappy 15 year old music while laughing hysterically (at the bird!, but they didn't know that)

He also likes a lot of the techno/elctro stuff, and some of the more 'mellow' 60s music, though he doesn't always get *so* into dancing. He does NOT like classical or opera (many zons do), he becomes aggressive when you have those on. We all hate country in this house, Kiwi especially (he crawls to the back corner of his cage and whines, loudly, at anything twangy. I agree and sympathize lol). Your zon and macaw may just not have cared for the kind of music you were playing. They do have preferences you know
My parents have a DYH and GCA, neither of whom dance. Lucy (DYH) enjoys opera (makes happy noises and puffs up), but doesn't dance to it. Barney the GCA would be the one looking at you as though you came from another planet. Their Goffin, on the other hand, barely has to be encouraged to dance, and he likes all music it seems.

I would try playing many different styles of music, and see which one your bird likes (if any, and if so, hopefully its a genera you actually like).

Re: Dancing!

My Amazons LOVE to dance (and sing). Have you tried dancing WITH your Pan? It may make all the difference in the world if you do it together.

Re: Dancing!

Mine don't dance, but they LOVE loud music in general. They like jangly stuff with lots of banjos, like Mumford & Sons. They like loud stuff with lots of different kinds of instruments and vocal tones like Typhoon and Arcade Fire. They will sing and jabber along and pin their eyes show very excited body language. Tater usually sings along by just warbling "Good booooooyyyyy! GOOOOD BOOOOY!"

Give it 15 years, when all those bands are no longer popular, and your birds are going to be like [my] Kiwi is about Nsync and the spice girls- just can't keep up with the times, but sure like what they heard when they were young lol.

Re: Dancing!

I have a friend who has a 30 some year old nape that they've had since he was young and he only sings and dances to Barry Manilow and the only words he uses is "oh Fred bird!"
