Step 1:

Start with a 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

Step 2:

Take the left corner of your paper and fold it along the right bottom corner to create a square. Cut the excess bottom portion off.

Step 3:

You should now have a figure like the one displayed.

Step 4:

Fold the long side of the triangle about halfway towards the center.

Step 5:

Flip the triangle over.

Step 6:

Fold the top layer of the flap upwards about halfway.

Keep in mind that these are the wings, so the flaps must be equal on both sides.

Step 7:

Bring the left side of the figure towards the right, folding the figure in half.

Step 8:

Fold the left flap back towards the center, creasing it in the middle.

Step 9:

Fold the remaining flap back. (In the opposite direction of the left flap)

Step 10:

Pinch the end of the front flap in so that it sticks out underneath, creating a beak.

Step 11:

Align or adjust any uneven folds. That's it! Your final product should look similar to the one in the image.
