Aww. So cute and innovative. I liked the little oxpecker too. Poor little birdie just wanted to help him and peck parasites.

Though it's a wonder the elephant wasn't freaked out at the idea of playing it considering where keys come from.

this is really creative and clever, and inspiring. If there's a will, there's a way, and it doesn't have to be conventional.

I would actually love to see a bird orchestra or birds playing a piano. It was cute story with a good ending. I love the friendship between the bird and elephant.

This is one of the cutest things I have ever seen. You should sent it to Disney or something as an idea for an animated short. Or a book. Or something! It's seriously awesome. :)

And the moral of the story is, if trying super hard one way isn't working try looking for a creative alternative. Try smarter not harder. I love it, it's really cute, makes me want to try to learn piano.
