Do you know any interesting bird-inspired piano pieces? If you want to kill some time on the internet, this is a cool article about Messiaen's bird fascination http://cburrell.wordpress.com/2008/05/09/messiaen-and-bird-song/

I sort of want someone to give a concert based around this theme.


I played this piece and LOVED it!!!
