After about a year of watching and waiting I have assembled the 6 member Gilbert "Bird" series of parlor or what we now refer to as "Kitchen" clocks.
At least 3 have original glass, (one was broken by FedEx who denied my claim based on the excuse, ("It might have been broken before it shipped"), it wasn't. Two need original pendulums which I have but haven't changed out yet. Three came with alarms as an option offered in Tran's book. The "Swan" has a calendar but I cannot confirm why except that the calendar movement is not add on parts and everything down to the screw holes seems original.
The clocks are from L to R:
Owl, Dove, Swan, Quail, Eagle, Hawk.

Someone asked what I wanted with six kitchen clocks. I just acquired the first two by chance and decided it would be interesting to put together a full series.

What a beautiful flock :)
I like the kitchen and parler clocks of that era for the variety of the cases.
