I was watching a show about Jungles on the weekend and saw a short segment about the Red Capped Manakin.

As a part of its mating/courtship display it does the moonwalk. It's the funniest thing I have seen a bird do for a long time. Also quite incredible behaviour.

You can see a video of it if you go to youtube ( site and type 'moonwalking bird' into the search bar.
