Little Bird Wows Judges on ‘Australia’s Got Talent’
Pips, a Willie Wagtrail from Sydney, Australia, blew away judges during a recent taping of Australia’s Got Talent. The bird sang “Di Quella Pira” from Verdi’s Il Trovatore.
“That’s a very difficult aria to sing,” said opera critic Miles Bernwhistle. “It’s also a tenor — most birds of his size are more in the countertenor range, so it was surprising to hear it come booming out of him.”
