Bird Song Clock

We have a clock on the wall in our garden room that marks the hours by chirping a different bird song for each hour. Outside are a number of bird feeders with lots of birds. Each hour when the clock chirps the birds outside respond.

Ah but, do the garden birds correspond with those on the clock?

I have the same clock except with a light wood. I love it!

I really like the light sensor which varies the level of the bird sounds being played. So when the lights are off in the kitchen, the sounds are not as loud.

I bought it when I was on the east coast. So mine has all the same birds as yours. Now I'm on the west coast, but I can't find a similiar clock with the west coast birds like the Stellar's Jays (one of my favorites), Chestnut-backed Chickadees (my wife took a great picture of one drying its wings), Varied Thrushes, and so on.

If anyone finds one, let me know.

Since this was a gift I don't know where this specific clock came from. If you Google "singing bird clock" you will see a number of different versions of bird clocks. Maybe one of them has western birds.

I did find one thing you might be interested in looking at. it is here: http://scientificsonline.com/product.asp?pn=3053198&bhcd2=1231519633

Thank you for your interesting comment.
