The Bird Finds "One"?

This is a little out there, but you should check out the video below. This bird hears the time in the music. It may only be one song; maybe he can only do a few, but it's pretty interesting.

Note that at one point he gets off the beat, but you can almost see him thinking as he works his way back to the time. See if you can figure out when he is off, and what point he's back again. He switches the one and two around here and there, but he clearly hears the pulse in the music.

I'm thinking if a bird can learn to hear the beat in a simple pop tune, with all our amazing brain power, the rest of us have little excuse. Sure, salsa music is more complex, but that's why we have those big heads on our shoulders.

Check this out and let me know what you think.
