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 — Chickadee, Red-Bellied Woodpecker, Cardinal, and Blue Bird — are hand made by Lance Long and Family of South Carolina. The family business, Olde World Carvers, carve birds and Santas as their livelihood.

Please note: After the stock of Backyard Birds Cuckoo Clocks I have with Lance’s birds are sold the clock will have birds from a new carver. So this is a limited edition. If you are as smitten with his birds as I am you can find his birds on Etsy. 

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 for The American Cuckoo Clock Company and illustrates where I’m going with my business: creating cuckoo clocks with an American aesthetic.

Please note this is an indoor only clock!

    The Limited Edition Backyard Birds Cuckoo Clock is my absolute favorite clock and I have quite a few different clocks around the house. The authentic Black Forest movement combined with the design and craftsmanship that Jodie put into this clock is so unique and it’s nothing like any other cuckoo clock sold out there. I love the fact that the hand-carved birds were handmade and painted from an artist in S.C where I live. When I called to inquire the first time about this beautiful clock, to my surprise, Jodie answered the phone and was very nice to answer my questions and when I placed the online order, my clock shipped overnight and everything was neatly packaged and set-up was easy. Jodie also places a complete packet to include instructions for set-up, receipt of purchase, papers insuring authenticity and care. I can’t believe I own a clock this unique that represents some of my favorite hobbies – backyard birds and Black Forest Cuckoo Clocks!!
