Zwitscher is German for "chirping." This motionactivated, house-shaped box will serenade you with chirps, tweets, and twitters--a chorus of realistic bird sounds--whenever you pass by. Soothing and refreshing, it's a moment to relax and unwind. The sound slowly fades out after two minutes. You might think of it as aural décor, an extra bit of ambience for your home. Cherry wood and plastic box takes 3 AA batteries (not included). Stands upright or hangs from a keyhole on back. A switch turns it off completely.
