Mechanical Flappingbird

I took a welding class a while ago; true to my mechanical and origami background, I created a piece of mechanical origami. The mechanism of the classic flapping bird can't be replicated in metal perfectly, however, this approximates the motion pretty well. Here are some photos, and a video of the original unpainted sculpture showing the motion (click on the picture to see the video):
