Watching a birdfeeder all day may not sound like a very good time, but this one just happens to be awesome. The Piip-Show is a live broadcast of a birdfeeder in Norway made to look like a coffee shop. It’s hosted by the Norwegian broadcasting network NRK.no.

The feeder hosts a variety of birds including blue tits, great tits, nuthatches, and more. Of course, their names have inspired plenty of jokes.

There’s even an occassional cameo appearance by a local squirrel.
The broadcast doesn’t have the same obvious appeal as, say, Panda Cam, but it’s strangely addictive.

Two details worth noting: The overturned chair and the television on the wall. The TV displays screenshots of the broadcast tweeted with the hashtag #nkrpiip.
The birds aren’t always there, which can feel a little bit existential, but that’s nature for you.
