Seagull with flapping wings

This plastic seagull is hung from a horizontal plastic rod by four nylon threads, each about 830mm long, attached to its wings. When the red ribbon below the seagull is pulled downwards and released, the balance is such that it will flap its wings up and down for a short while.
