    Has anybody tried the Squawkers McCaw?
    Hi,

    I would really like to put a parrot in my POTC display. I found these used Squawkers McCaw and they look pretty good. Has anybody tried them or have you found something better?

    Thanks

    That's pretty sweet. I'll have to buy one off ebay and hack it.

    Thanks

    That board looks like a nice board. I'll keep it in mind while I try it on my own. I'll probably use a Teensy with a power regulator cause I like to try things on my own. I'm sure I'll run out of time and buy a board. So thanks for showing me.

    I'm working on my first Squawkers project now and can't recommend J-Man's board enough. I am not electronically inclined at all and had set aside an entire afternoon to tackle it. With his instructions I was completely done in 20 minutes.

    Thanks, I just bought 2 birds. I'll see what kind of work they need. I'll probably set it up like the picture.

    Now I just have to figure how to pay for this years builds. Anyone here use fund raising?

    Just got my first Squawker. It seems to work okay but goes to sleep pretty quick. That might be because the batteries are low. I'm thinking now that I should get J-Mans board so I can do a quick build on the first one.

    J-man is a good person to do business with and will answer questions if you have any.

    You'll get instructions with the board with close up photos and I have found them very easy to follow. Bought a few of his boards (two squawkers and one Jemmy talk). He's always willing to help if you have questions. Fun projects that bring wow and the kids love the results.
