Bird call clock http://www.birdandy...door/bird-clock.htm
Random bird calls on the hour. [krelnik, Oct 04 2004]

I've seen bird call clocks (see link), these have a light sensor that deactivates the sound at night.

Yeah, but that will only do if you live in a relatively sunny climate. The nights are already drawing in at 4 o'clock and earlier in Norge.

Why not? Because that is your idea. Go, run with it, run like the wind, and post, post, post with the guidance of providance, and make it the greatest idea, that the world has ever seen!

That could be one of the expansion cards 'Midnight Macabre'

My parents have a clock with a picture of a different composer at each number - when the hour strikes a short piece of classical music from that particular composer is played.
