This bird is fairly easy to fold, although you might want to try a few easier models before it. It will help you through your daily life, as a bookmark, a gift, or just a reminder that nature is wherever you go, even in your office high in a tower in the city. Here is a link to my first origami instructable, Origami Bases and Basics. I got this model from the book, The Joy of Origami, by Margaret Van Sicklen.

Step 1: Fold in half, several times

Fold in half on the diagonals, from the top point to the bottom point, left to right. It should end up like a triangle with the longest side on the left. Then fold in half again, putting the top corner on the bottom one. It should end up as another, smaller triangle.
