Bought Whirligig not spinning? Please help

chuehFebruary 23, 2012

The whirligig bird I bought 3 weeks ago has rarely spun its wings but rotated a little here and there on the body. I don't think that this has defects or anything, because the sellers seemed to have great experiences making them for sale.

I put it about 3 feet high and about 3 ft away from the front wall and 6 ft away from another wall that's perpendicular to the front wall. The bird has not spun, is it because I put it too close to walls?

Does it spin freely by hand?
How much breeze is it getting?
Try blowing on it with a fan to see if it reponds. Back the fan away until it doesn't spin to judge if it is reasonably responsive.
You may need to relocate it to achieve better airflow.
