Kevin showed me this mechanical parrot he was preparing to convert to a ventriloquist puppet. It's a beautiful bird - very realistic. The complex original electronical mechanics can be seen on the shop bench (lower left corner of the picture). They will be discarded.

While on the road home, I remembered a big stuffed parrot, (far less detailed) I have in storage. And I think I've mentally figured out the steps required to convert it to a puppet (or make something similar). All I need is to complete jobs on hand so I can "play" a bit!
