Evening Entertainment

Today, we are going to experience something a little different. Every Bird Has Its Own Song is part concert, part performance art, celebrating the birds native to Estonia. This was broadcast on February 24, 2020 as part of Estonia’s Independence Day celebrations.

This concert is hosted on an Estonian broadcasting site, so it can’t be embedded on this page. Just click the link and it will open in a new window for you. Enjoy!

We hope you enjoyed your day in Estonia!
