Origami Singing Cardinal

"Use what talents you possess; The woods would be quiet if no bird sang but the one that sang best."
-Henry van Dyke [1852-1933]

This is a from a model created by Roman Diaz.   Folded by me from a 12 inches square of paper, painted with acrylics.

Hahaha!  Nice idea.
Although, this one doesn't move quite so much as the real ones.

Very well photographed!!
I have the book with this model.. only tried folding it once and my paper was a little to thick. It's a lovely model, though!

I also had my problems with this model, it is my 3rd attempt.
It is not an easy model to fold with thicker paper but, if you give it another go I would also suggest a large paper, it helped me a lot.

No, it is not.. The size I used would have been sufficient if I'd used a slightly thinner paper.
