Easy Instructions for Resetting a Singing Bird Clock
Do you have a Singing Bird clock from the National Audubon Society and the Bird on the hour is not the correct one singing?
Frustrating ....right? 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 5 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). (Please 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 5 simple steps above.
ALL Fixed... Enjoy the Sounds of your Clock with the Correct Bird Singing Once Again.
Questions & Answers
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.
