Default How to Carve a Primitive Crow

I am looking for a pattern of a primitive crow. Specifically a flat bird that stands on a single stick like a shore bird.

If anyone has an idea I would like to hear from you.

Thanks

I moved the thread as I think it will be more productive here as compared to being in the holiday fourm.

I know a couple have carved them and if you check Wip I think you will find a crow cane just finished with information

That would be a "crow decoy" Give me a day or two to look around my shop a think I have a pattern for one somewhere. If I do, I can scan it and email it to you.

Look for a crow photo by Google'ing images, print it out and use it for a profile. Simple as can be. Carve as much or as little as you want, the head and beak is the important part, get that right and the rest follows.

If you go to a large hunting section in a store, you probably can buy for a small amount, a 3D full size plastic crow decoy. It's a simple matter to sketch the outline from that. The decoy makes a great ornament, and if you like crows, they gain confidence from the decoy and will even start gleaning seed from under the bird feeder. Thanks for the site with pictures. I've copied them and am listening to their call. It's like music to me. :-)

Thank you for the info. There is a BassPro shop not far from my house. I never thought about getting a real decoy.
