Origami takes flight with these 25+ beautiful bird projects, from a cockatiel, horned owl, and hummingbird to the exotic albatross and extinct dodo. Just photocopy the templates onto cardstock; score, cut, and fold; and, finally, interlock the joints to create a dimensional creature. All the projects are arranged by difficulty and the richly photographed pages show the birds from multiple perspectives, perching, standing, and flying.
