A Flock of Keys

Keys that make the sound of birds

I have loads of keys, that I can't tell apart, even with the use of those little colour coded sleeves that slip over the end of them. Bird Song Keys are my saviour.

Each key makes the sound of a different bird when released on the end of its retracting leash and twirled around your head like a lassoo. This is possible, because the keys have all been fitted with a tiny reed warbler, tuned to make individual bird sounds...

Hooded crow - that must be the office. Magpie - that will be my studio full of harvested junk. Nightingale - I'm home at last.

       They're chirpy.

       How do you train a reed warbler to make the sounds of other birds? You'd need a minah or starling or similar, shirley?

       (+) I wonder about swinging all of the keys at the same time.

       The second paragraph reads like one of those computer programs where each word is chosen based on the previous word using a probability table.

       Don't be afraid to try the "chicken" key.
