I'm guessing this thread is going to sink to the bottom faster than a lead balloon, and please don't think I'm a nut-case, but I take my guitar out on the porch all the time and play it for the pigeons. Believe it or not, they really enjoy this, and there are some songs they like more than others. For example, I play this silly little song called Song Of The Shrimp, and Peter loves it! I'm sure he has no idea it's about shrimp, but he must enjoy the melody or something. Anyway, it got me to thinking.... does anyone know any bird songs? Or do any of you who have indoor birds know that they like/dislike music? I know there was a bird on YouTube awhile back (Snowball) who became quite famous for dancing to the Backstreet Boys.

I LOVE THIS THREAD!!! ...and may just take a radio out to my guys this summer!!! In fact, I'll play a sooting CD for them in the Aviary while I have the Shop Vac blasting inside!!

We haven't tried it with the birds yet, but the dogs LOVE the bagpipe playing (not taped....real highland bagpipes - right here in the house!!!) They howl right along with the pipes (if it was really "screaming" - - I don't expect they'd stick around but they do!!!). Of course, the cats seem to think that someone is torturing a cat somewhere and they have NO intention of being next:D:eek:
