I always really liked Birdwatcher very much. The props in both construction and design appeal to me and the method and ability to perform it twice in two different ways is a big plus IMHO.

It seemed to increase in popularity years after its release. Around a decade or so ago, not many really cared about it very much from my empirical experiences. Nowadays, it appears to have gained the respect it really deserves.
It's a Tenyo day in the neighborhood!

The prop was really beautifully made. The 1st method is clever, the 2nd one is even better. It`s just perfect !

I love this effect, so clever. I like it when the maths/principal does all the work so you can just go right in and perform.
I did a version called witchbeard’s gold. There’s a great alternative in Tenyoism too called crowd generator, I made myself a set of those too (it was the original idea that spawned birdwatcher)

This one is 'superior'! Easy to do, lengthy routine which gets more baffling each step and the last reveal with the cards in the box make this a true miracle.
Don't perform after a couple of drinks though, as I once did, as chances are you won't correctly add up the numbers, or forget the 'special' number :? :D

Yes, this is a very clever trick and also the design is very nice, easy to carry with you
I was very pleased when I bought this trick halfway cheap after a long search
I also like a somewhat longer routine which enfolds the magic ...
