The Bird Is The Word

What does a parakeet, a pierce of string, an empty soft-drink bottle, and a bit of PVC pipe, have in common?

Or a stick instead of the pipe.

Oh, right, yes, the video.

Coming right up…


(I discovered this video via ‘Instructables‘, which is a truly fantabulous place for anyone who’s ever wanted to make, well, anything really!)

And now, you know why this post is called what it is …
