The (Indoors Only!)Backyard Birds Cuckoo Clock

Truly a hands-across-the-water collaboration, the Backyard Birds Cuckoo Clock marries German technology with an American artists’s hand-carved birds.

The clock itself — everything but the birds — is made by the Anton Schneider Company, of Schonach, Germany. Schneider is known for their excellent craftsmanship and trouble-free clocks. Made as they have been for nearly two centuries, with some clock parts made in cottage industries, the clock has a Regula movement that powers the bellows, the cuckoo, and the animated birds.

I designed the clock to look like a bird feeder. The suet feeder on the right and the hopper feeder on the left are handmade. Schneider ships the entire clock in running order here to Georgia for the final touch. The birds — Goldfinch, Red-Bellied Woodpecker, Cardinal, and Blue Bird — are hand made by Bob Goad of Oklahoma. Bob has won many national and world championships for his carved birds. His commercial work includes a Canada goose decanter for Jim Beam, and huge carved whale billboard for Sea World. I’m honored to be working with Bob and to have his amazing birds grace my clock!

As is the case with every cuckoo clock, the cuckoo emerges to sing on the hour and half hour. The extra charm of an animated cuckoo clock is that the cuckoo sets off even more magic. In this case, the Blue Bird feeds the “baby”, and the Cardinal “pecks” for seed. Yes, moving birds!

This is my long-awaited second design and illustrates where I’m going with my business: creating cuckoo clocks with an American aesthetic.

    Some people might think I am crazy. As a German to order a German-American Cuckoo Clock coming from Germany to the US and back to me to Germany. The factory is 2 hours away from my home 🙂 But it is absolutely worth it. This clock brings the lovely backyard birds from Georgia right into our home. My favorite is the Red Bird which we do not have in Germany. I was lucky to live for a while in Georgia, so this feels like home to hear the cuckoo from Georgia 😉 It was nice to communicate with Jodie. You are doing a great job. Good luck and keep on creating!!!

    Just received our cuckoo clock from Jodie
    It’s hanging on our log wall in our cabin which is decorated in a farmhouse style . It matches just perfect and with the cathedral ceilings it sounds wonderful. I might buy another one too.

    My new clocks on the wall a few days and I can’t stop looking at it and smiling. Been wanting a cuckoo clock for quite a while and The Backyard Birds was a perfect find. Couldn’t be happier. Thanks Jodi for bringing a smile to all that enter my home.

    • So glad it’s making you smile — that’s the idea! Thanks for your kind review. I hope the clock brings you and your family and friends smiles for years to come!

Choose a 1-Day or an 8-Day Movement

The Backyard Birds Cuckoo Clock is now available with an 8-day (on right) as well as a 1-day (to the left) movement.

With a 1-day movement, the clock will run for nearly a day on one winding. You will need to wind your clock morning and evening.

An 8-day movement will run for a week on one winding.

The 8-day clock has a different movement than the 1-day and larger, heavier weights. The cost is an additional $150.  I try to keep several 8-days in stock at all times. If I don’t have one the lead time is usually 4-6 weeks so Email me at cuckoo@TheCuckooClockDesigner.com if you need the clock immediately. Otherwise, when I confirm your order I will give you an estimate as to when your clock will be ready to ship. And I will also let you know when I am about to ship it.
