No, "Wild Birds" is not the name of the band. Contemporary French artist Celeste Boursier-Mougenot set up a Les Paul in a room with 40 zebra finches and recorded what happened.

It actually sounds better that a lot of the "music" I've heard in guitar stores. smile


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Oh, that's SO cute, Peter...interesting too! I've actually got two zebra finches at home, and if they can make noise either vocally or with objects, they certainly will. I'll bet they loved that guitar! HAHA!

These are my beasts. grin

Lol, Peter.

Mary, we finally see your tweeters, haha. My brother used to work in an aviary many years ago and one time brought home over 30 different types of Zebra finches. He also raised a few parrots from newborns...still has one, "Cookie".

That's cool, Adrian! I'll bet some of them were really pretty. They're cute little buggers too! Anyhow, I love birds. smile I also have 2 cockatiels.

I used to like birds. But I got tired of the noise and mess.

I used to have a Pekin Robin . They usually only live a few years long in captivity but my little fellah lived to 15 yrs shocked smile . Needless to say, it was heartbreaking to see him pass away after so many years.

Really? And your cats had nothing to do with this decision? smile

There's about 15 years between the birds and the cat. But, the cat would probably like me to keep birds again.
