Easy Instructions for Resetting a Singing Bird Clock
I see the robin on the hour, but hear a blue jay instead. Those little birds always go out of sync whenever I change those batteries. Batteries never last forever, and I always run into this problem. How do I fix this again? Well, there is a simple way to get the birds back in sync with the correct time.
Here are five simple steps to fix this problem:
- Remove the old batteries from the back of the clock.
- Set the time on the clock to 11:50 (10 minutes to twelve). (Note: Some that are RSPB clocks set at 5:50, not 11:50.)
- Insert the new batteries into the back of the clock.
- Set the correct time.
- Your birds should now be back in sync with the correct bird singing as pictured by the time.
Remember: Every time you change or remove the batteries, you'll need to redo the five simple steps above.

I have an Audubon clock that chimes 15 minutes before the hour. To correct this, I replaced the clock mechanism, and the clock time is accurate. What could be causing this?
What I would do is as soon as the bird sings move the hands on the clock 15 minutes fast, unplug the battery that controls the time, and then 15 minutes later put it back in. See if that corrects it again.Helpful 4
