drinking birds

My bird swings backwards and bangs it's head on the ground...

My bird dips into the glass of water then stays there...

My bird stops drinking after a while...

Drinking Birds FAQ from The Happy Drinking bird

I was reminded of these Birds of youth by seeing a DIY version at Science Toys you can make with your kids (via exclamation mark and plep)

I saw one in the local Milk Bar when I was eight, and for some reason coveted it. My best friend S owned one, which was probably why. Was given to me on my ninth birthday, and it drank happily for a while before it stopped, we moved on and it disappeared. Maybe my bird went west or flew north?)

Yeah. I remember the Looney Tunes episode with Tweetie and Sylvester where T mistakes one for his 'friend'. I think S ended up eating it and then had to pause and dip every few paces. Laugh. I nearly started.

Missed that episode.

Lucky one of our mad labradors never chomped the drinking bird. They preferred ducks.
