Finches rock.



Celeste Boursier-Mougenot gave the birds their guitars. (Via Jac.)

Maybe I'm the first to think: The Fynches.

Almost sounds more like 12-tone school, to me.

I'm glad the noise didn't seem to scare them the way 12-tone scares me...

This was really cute. Thanks for posting it!

They rock in the treetops all day long, hoppin' and bobbin' and singin' their song....Funky finches, tweet, tweety-tweet, Funky finches....

given a million years, a thousand monkeys with typewriters would eventually write the complete works of Shakespeare

Watch out Mr. Clapton, this likely won't take a million years

Sorry, but that bird-brained music is just awful. Want to see an animal with some real talent? Watch Nora the piano cat.

She could eat those birds for lunch... and probably has.

Great photography silly music. These birds play guitar like I fly.

Interesting to me, as we so often idealize and romanticize nature as we view it. But, life is hard for those outside the house. This gives a soundtrack to life being lived, in a way that I think better than the new agey mood music does.

John is right- Yay, Nora!

She's a treat to watch. And listen to.

Wow, if the track is played backwards it sounds like Turn me on drib man

What a disappointment.

I was waiting for the dry hump and the lighter fluid.

Cute. I had to tweet that.

For birds about to rawk, we salute you.
