The "novelty shop bird" you mention was very popular in Arizona some years back. It can continue to slowly bob up and down as long as its beak can dip into a supply of water. I'm not sure if the motivation comes from the weight of the water or from temperature change, but it is a clever idea. Invented by a man with a very high IQ: actor Eddie Albert.
