One, two, tree – a birdsong clock full of surprises.
KooKoo has reinterpreted the traditional cuckoo clock in this modern design – and given it an exciting new twist. Our Tree-BirdBox has two separate elements: a wall clock in the silhouette of a fir tree, and a tastefully understated birdhouse featuring a miniature black bird on a tiny perch.
There are no almost no limits to your creativity as you choose the best spots for the tree and the birdhouse. They can be located up to 20 meters apart for our clever trick to work – the tree clock and birdhouse are connected by radio signal. Every hour on the hour, our BirdBox receives a signal from the clock and one of twelve European songbirds begins to warble melodiously. Or if you prefer, you can set the Tree-BirdBox to sound the hour with the classic call of the cuckoo. A light sensor ensures that the birds settle down for the night once darkness falls.
The birdsongs are all authentic field recordings made by French ornithologist and bioacoustics researcher Jean-Claude Roché. Relax and enjoy these genuine sounds of nature! And of course the KooKoo Tree-BirdBox is especially fun for chirpy children, subtly awakening their interest in our feathered friends.
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.
