I received the two birds. I have had them in the past but gave one to each of my daughters. I've been watering my plants by hand and missed my birds. I put one in each of my plant pots and trusted them to let me know when I need to water. I thought it was taking a long time to remind me, but I had watered them good before I put the birds in. I finally checked them two days ago. Neither bird sang and I lost some of my plants that I have had for over a year. I could take the batteries out and get new ones, but I'm not sure that is the problem.
