Live finches are seen concealed within hair rollers following a passenger inspection at John F. Kennedy Airport, New York, December 13, 2018. Customs agents arrested a bird smuggler who hid 70 live finches inside multi-colored hair rollers he had brought from Guyana, and may have been bound for a gambling ring, federal officials said.
