Some species of animal let out a certain call to attract a mate, others display impressive colors or feathers in order to gain the attention of the opposite sex, and some have a specific dance they perform.
The male red-capped manakin seeks out a mate by performing a unique and strange ritual that involves snapping his wings and dancing on the branch. By moving back and forth across the branch, this brightly colored male bird attracts the attention of his desired female.
Move over, Michael Jackson, this special bird has got the moves!
Not only can he perform some serious dance moves, but he also is incredibly beautiful. The bright colors also help the male red-capped manakins attract females while they show off their skills, just like being at the club!
See his unique dance below and prepare to realize this bird has better dancing abilities than most humans.
