Jazz Woodcock

Woodcocks do this awesome little dance that just screams to have music added. You can find many examples at YouTube, but I was particularly taken with this jazzy version of "Habanera" from Bizet's opera Carmen. I just wish it were a bit longer.

That woodcock is clearly about four beers in.

It is interesting that it dances with its body but its feet and head stay stationary.

They do it to lure or drive bugs and worms up out of the ground. but this dumb bird doesn't know it's on pavement.
