Some of the most elegant and lovely models are these origami birds! I have collected the traditional models of the famous crane, the flapping bird, sitting bird, twirling bird and the simple but sweet pelican...
I have also included here the more challenging owl model; so if you have tried the others and need an extra challenge, or if you have some experience with origami, then give the owl a go!
Each link will take you to a separate page for the diagram of your choice, where you can view the instructions on that page, or download the instructions in PDF form to look at or print later on.
There are many more diagrams on the main origami instructions page so have a browse, and be sure to let me know if there is something you would like to see!
