OMG---came home to my mom (not a huge Noodles fan) showing this to NOODLES (we are visiting)! HAHAH! She attempted to steal her phone at that point, but it certainly had her interested!

Who taught whom?
Or: Which came first? The chicken, or the egg?

Re: NPR story: Science studies Cockatoo's dance videos

Clearly Too's are much better at Headbanging style dancing than Humans, and by a bunch!!!

And NPR felt that this needed to be reported? Clearly, not too many Bird People at NPR.

Perhaps you haven't read the article.
NPR is reporting that it is science itself that has show an interest.
Information gleaned from the videos may advance a field of science.
For an explanation, read the article.

I know that many peoople these days are politically polarized and refuse to read anything from NPR or from FOX.
... and many these days are anti-science.

If that's why the point of the article has eluded you, then so be it.
Have a nice day.

Re: NPR story: Science studies Cockatoo's dance videos

Full-on missed the dry humor!

Neither political nor science targeted, only the ongoing shock that abilities exist outside of center Human. The reality is, the Too is clearly better at it than Humans.

Regarding anti-science, possibly. But that is because too much science has been used to support specific view points. Sadly, far too much science is prepaid by the full cross-section of donors with a want for a prestated results. Clearly not the foundation for this research, correct.
