Behold the ostrich tamer

Ostriches are known for running like maniacs (according to the San Diego Zoo, they can hit up to 43 miles per hour). But did you know that when the music is right, they can also strut like Travolta?

Now you do. A YouTube video featuring a young man playing a tin whistle for an ostrich results in the bird doing a kind of mating dance in front of the bemused musician. At the end of his short rendition of what sounds like the theme to "Lord of the Rings," the pleased-as-punch musician declares, "It loves me!"

Truer words were never spoken.
