Moods of Cone Bird Tell Weather
MADE from a pine cone, and mounted on a pair of stilts carved to resemble legs, this odd little weather bird will tell you just what kind of weather is in the offing. When fair weather is due, the bird will bristle up as if it were angry, but when a storm is somewhere near, it will quiet down and smooth out its scales. A realistic head should be carved and glued to the end of the cone. Hot dry air causes the leaves to ruffle up; stormy air causes them to settle.
