The Famous Drinking Bird

The Famous Drinking Bird

  • Drinking Bird. A rather dumb looking 6″ bird with a felt covered head and has plastic feet. Worse, he cannot get his fill of water. You buy the drinks.
  • Fluid inside condenses from the evaporative cooling of the water off the bird’s beak, making it top heavy and dunking it back into the water. The condensate rejoins the liquid pool in the bird’s bulb, and he tips up again.
  • WARNING! The fluid and dye inside the bird can permanently stain, and the bird’s glass body can easily be broken. Children are fascinated by the bobbing bird, and the educational possibilities are great. But they should watch it, not fondle it!!

    These are exactly what you expect, and exactly what you want! They are so fun to set up and watch as they go INDEFINITELY as long as you keep their water supply filled 😉

    ONLY problem is on certain surfaces the bird might “migrate” (ahahahahaha) a little, moving around slowly as it bobs up and down. I solved this by glueing a bunch of heavy bolts into the base of mine. Looks a little dorky, but hey, we’re talking about goofy glass-bird things perpetually dunking their heads into water . . . the whole time wearing top hats. It’s pretty dorky already!

    Order these and have some laughs, you won’t be disappointed!

    The Drinking Bird is made of glass….glad we got two as my 11-year old dropped and shattered Bird #1!! After adjusting properly, the bird drank continuously for HOURS until I physically stopped it….

    What worked??
    1. Used a glass 4″ tall..filled to the brim with water
    2. Soaked the Bird’s Head completely with water
    3. Adjusted the metal collar height (gently as glass is fragile!)
    4. Most importantly….I slightly bent the metal “wings” (that rest on the plastic “legs”) on the metal collar (gently) to position the bird’s distance from the glass (plastic “feet”/base keeps it a minimum distance from the glass of water.

    Once he starts drinking, it keeps on going!!
