This video shows Snowball's delightful performance -- which I missed!! [3:01]
tags: dancing cockatoo, streaming video Snowball is a medium sulphur crested Eleanora cockatoo and he loves to dance and sing. He loves the Back Street Boys. No one taught Snowball to dance ... he just heard this song and suddenly felt like dancing. We're all jealous because he can outdance each one of us ... nobody likes a show off! When he's really in the mood, he dances and sings. And at the end of the performance he takes a bow or two or twenty!! Enjoy the show. [1:17] Thanks EVERYONE for sending this video to me during the past few days!
