Crows, Ravens and Wells

the fabulous Christmas Present Parrot, rarely seen but never forgotten!

We shaped birds….in card with fluttery bits, as hats with beaks and sharp staring eyes and as (sometimes frustrating) origami
a lot of our bird hats had a slightly demented air..(practice version)

Among the glue, tape, sticky bits and streamers and moments of anguish when that *!@** paper will just not fold the way the book says it should, we built the birds we know from our gardens and the hills around us and from our own hopes (parrots and penguins)

a proud Fluttery Bird Builder
if you have an origami Crow on your shoulder
are you a Pirate or maybe a wise Wizhard?

Through the day there was also an ongoing thread of excitement over the Waxwings that have been roosting in one set of trees beside one garden in one street for the last week or so
