"The Birds" Anemometer

  [vote for,

Pretend, scary-looking crows which can be attached to things like TV aerials, climbing frames, etc. These birds have hinged wings which are finely balanced so that they will gently flap in the slightest breeze. The readings of the flap rates from all the crows is combined and presented as a wind speed reading.

       It's time for a remake of The Birds... Transferring idea details to a fresh page so that it doesn't "spoil" this one.

       ...and it'll have some sort of wind-powered bird noise generator - although it'll be tough to replicate the scary electronic noises actually used in "The Birds".
