What a great creation! The fact that you've used wooden gears to bring animation to your creation gives this piece a nostalgic old-school charm that makes the piece very memorable. The birds themselves are packed with personality which really comes out in the video. I love the sound your automaton makes! This is a fun, quirky piece that is cleverly made. Congrats on the well deserved DD.
