>> They're ordinary hair rollers but their purpose was far from ordinary, and those feathers will give you a clue. Customs official at JFK Airport in New York caught a passenger trying to smuggle life finches stuffed inside the rollers. An agriculture specialist discovered the birds on Saturday in a bag of a traveler who had just arrived from Georgetown, Guyana.
The birds were hidden in side a duffel bag. The Finches were reportedly brought to the US to participate in singing contest where people bet on how many times the bird chirps. Customs officials say a winning male, Finch can sell for up to $10,000. The birds were confiscated and the passenger was quarantined and eventually sent back to Guyana.
