If we were both carrying something hanging on two strings there is no way that you could take more than half the load. Given this, the way you have it set up the bluebird would be taking a load of 1.25 gnomes putting it over capacity and the owl would have an uneven weight of 1.25 and 1.5 between legs. This is not a valid solution to the problem.
In the actual solution, the owl carried that bag with both legs, and the mallard helps it with one of its legs. If what you said held water then there would be no correct way to carry a five gnome bag, regardless of the combination of birds.

: I really hate everything about this episode. The music, the babies, the puzzles. It's really a horrible nightmare.
: We finally have a quote for the back of the Wii box
I also have mixed feelings about one of the more desireable jobs in this world, it bears the title "S&M Designer"
