    Has anybody tried the Squawkers McCaw?
    I use a MP3 USB Flash Drive Micro SD TF Card Player to play the Christmas songs, POTC ride Baker Parrot and the Enchanted TIKI Room album (1967).

    You can get the whole ride, including parrot, here You just have to edit it with Audacity.

    The POTC looks good but you can get better beak reaction by fine tuning the GAIN pot just a HAIR CW, and I do mean a hair. Just a touch of that pot makes a difference! Take a look at my Pirate Squawker using some of the same clips and you'll see what I mean.

    I didn't spend any time fine tuning. I just did the TRIG and it works okay with all the different tracks I put through it. I have a lot of people come by to see what I'm adding this year and I just wanted to show it off. I'll do the fine tuning when I build the full prop for it.

    Found a Squawker the other day, Ms16 was about to throw it out with some other old toys.
    Still working but missing it's feet.

    If I can find a way to attach it without the feet I may get one of J-Man's boards.

    Keep checking ebay, occasionally there are Squawkers feet listed.

    If anyone is looking for the Pryat rum barrel case that J-Man used for his recent parrot props, ebay has one listed now. Like the Squawkers parrots they come up on the site every so often. Full birds minus the packaging, instructions, remote, stand and cracker are way more prevalent. I have seen the parrot feet listed over the past few years but not that often. Just mentioning they don't get listed that often so you don't hold off buying if you see one and decide to wait.
