This is the story of a little bird that grew up without being able to whistle. Now, this is something of a setback if you are one of our feathered friends and this animated short by Siri Melchior, a director at Trunk Animation charts his attempts to get his whistle.  This is a very simple story and as such so is the animation – deceptively so because it is something of a multicolored achievement in its own right.

There is a wonderful message in this animation too.  If you are no good at something, don’t give up! Persevere until you can do it – and then you will find that you can excel.  Also, don’t be afraid to take advice – but do be a little careful where you get it from if you might make a tasty snack!
