We here are Strombo.com are big fans of animal livestreams, which give you a peek into the daily goings-on of creatures who'd probably scurry or fly away if you got too close in person (if you haven't seen Yukon Electrical Company's eagle nest cam, you should definitely check it out).
The livestream we're bringing you today, however, is a little different.
Piip-Show is a 24/7 stream that the Norwegian television network NRK has been broadcasting since the beginning of March. The set-up is simple: a cast of magpies, blue tits and bullfinches stop by three different specially built sets to eat the seeds and nuts set out for them. The current set, which you can see above, is modelled after Java, a popular coffee shop in Oslo, and features four tiny stools, an espresso machine and even a tiny TV screen with birds on it.
The highlight so far has been a visit from a rascally squirrel, who feasted on the bird feed:
The show is the creation of Magne Klann, a photographer and avid birdwatcher, and Lars M. Aurtande, who first made a primitive version Piip-Show in 2003.
In recent years, NRK has become the leading exponent of the so-called "Slow TV" movement, broadcasting shows like a seven-hour train voyage from Oslo to Bergen:
Or a 134-hour live broadcast of a ferry working its way through the country's fjords. Here's the whole voyage compressed into 37 minutes:
Piip-Show will run until the end of May, and can be streamed on the NRK website.
