From familiar birds of the Western hemisphere — the Baltimore Oriole, Black-Capped Chickadee, and Northern Cardinal — to Asia's Strawberry Finch, Africa's Lilac-Breasted Roller, Australia's Red-Backed Kite, and the Flame Bowerbird of New Guinea, these 30 original models offer folding fun for bird lovers and origami enthusiasts of all ages.
Suitable even for beginning paperfolders, the bird models feature simple folding instructions, and fun facts about each species appear on the back of each full-color pattern. The scientifically accurate models are perforated for easy removal. See the inside cover for a link to an instructional YouTube video that makes folding these beautiful birds even easier.

Easy Bird Origami offers wonderful, full-color birds to fold and bring to life! Each page is printed — vividly! — to look like realistic birds. There are fascinating facts on each breed on the back of each pattern. There are just a couple folding approaches, so they’re all easy to master. My daughters and I are going through the book, and using them to decorate an indoor tree we have, and are talking about adding them to our holiday tree this year, too.
