Origami Birds

In addition to paper cranes and flapping birds, there are hundreds of other origami bird models. Bird models are easy to create because a piece of paper has 4 corners and this corresponds with the 4 parts of a bird: head, tail, and two wings. Maybe the diagrams below will inspire you to create your own bird model.  Click on the tabs to see your origami birds of interest.
