Back in Appleton before we sold our house we had both a Grandfather clock & a Cuckoo clock and we sort of miss the hourly announcements of the passage of time. We realized that we now cannot accommodate a Grandfather clock...but... what about a cuckoo clock? Well, I researched cuckoos on the web and we found this owl cuckoo that we liked, ordered it, and it arrived this Monday. We like the carved owls & log design in that it is a little different from the traditional "chalet" style cuckoos.
Nazzie was quite interested in it at first but thankfully, like me, his attention span is quite short and he has gone back to his ongoing study of the hummers that daily visit our feeders.
