Incredible mating dance of a male bird of paradise amuses people. Watch
Simply born to dance is the feeling that the sight of this male bird inspires in all. A rare video of a mating dance by a male Bird of Paradise has gone viral on the Internet and Twitterati is super amused.
Birds’ courtship rituals -- from daring dives to intricate sequences including wing flaps, head dips, bill rubbing -- is a sight to behold. In many species, the male alone dances to win the female. She only judges the males and selects her favourite.

People flooded the post with all sorts of reactions. “OMG!!! Why can’t humans learn from the birds? “ wrote a Twitter user. “Its looks like neon lighting show by a male bird for attracting her for a date, perhaps I should also try it in front of my girlfriend,” joked another. “Wow.... Never seen before,” exclaimed a third. “This is really awesome.. thanks for sharing,” commented another. “Very beautiful video of bird ,this is the gift giving by Mother Nature.Thanks to Nature Mother,” wrote a sixth.
