I love it.

I used to have one of those drinking birds when I was a kid. That is, until my brother broke it. I think it was probably my first geeky toy.

I love it! Now why didn't I think of that? Oh yeah, YOU'RE the artist and I'm just a geeky fan of your work

If you were really trying to simulate a Lucky Bird it would've had to have bobbed quickly above the water and then slowly lowered both its head position and frequency, but that would've required a lot of frames and significant time for the loop. As usual you got the idea across right away
