Moonwalking Manakin

October 14, 2006

Actually, to me this shimmy looks a little more like the “Electric Slide” than Michael Jackson, but that’s just nitpicking.

The clip doesn’t make it clear, but this bird is Pipra mentalis, the Red-capped Manakin. It ranges from southern Mexico down through Central America into northern South America.
