The Original KOOKOO Songbird Clock
Are you looking for a truly classic clock to hang on your wall? But at the same time, you’d like something special? Then just listen to this: True to its name, which is the German word for “songbirds,” every hour the KOOKOO Singvögel sounds off with the voice of one of twelve European songbirds – from the blackbird to the woodlark. Recorded in the field by Jean-Claude Roché (France), the carefree singing of these birds will lift your heart, bringing an authentic piece of nature into your home. When darkness falls, a built-in light sensor automatically tells the entire flock that it’s time to pipe down for the night.
The lovingly designed clockface features colourful and faithfully rendered illustrations by renowned bird artists Kilian Mullarney (Ireland) and Dan Zetterström (Sweden). It’s no wonder that this charming birdsong clock is not only highly popular with adults, but with kids as well. Children in particular get a fun introduction to our fine feathered friends and learn to identify the songs of birds they hear in the great outdoors. More fascinating details about the special characteristics, songs, and habitats of the twelve featured European songbirds can be found in the leaflet, “Where and how they live” that comes with the clock.
KOOKOO Singvögel comes in eight different frame colours and is available with a chrome or wooden frame.
Songs of twelve European songbirds (pre-set sequence): blackbird – song thrush – blackcap – garden warbler – robin – nightingale – bluethroat – common redstart – collared flycatcher – willow warbler – woodlark – golden oriole

I am very impressed by the quality of the audio and the artistic rendering of the various songbirds. I do wish that the birds were identified on the clock itself but realize that you deal with numerous languages.
Since you ask: Actually it was the wrong clock that was delivered to our son, NOT the one with the songbirds but the one with the farm animals! Also, the frame was NOT in the color I ordered (and which was confirmed: cream yellow) but dark green and black and not very friendly for a child's room... I love the clock with the songbirds, which has been hanging in our kitchen for about 10 years, and that was the one our granddaughter loved when she visited us here (in Germany)!
Love this clock. Easy to set up. The birds are great. I did, however, forget, that the birds are European. It does not take away with how beautiful it sounds.
This clock is well-made, works perfectly and is beautiful. There are cheaper imitations out there but as the saying goes, "you get what you pay for."
