Origami - The Queerest Bird of all

Among all the birds, the Owl is the most widely created piece in origami.  Most obviously because of its distinctive face - large eyes, sharp hooked beak and large wide rounded head. 

If  you can still remember the poem, it was called a nasty word - queer (strange) bird.


 Of all the queer birds, I ever did see,
the owl is the queerest by far for me.
for all day long, she sits on a tree,
and when the night comes, away flies she!!!

Yes, readily, a person can immediately identify a folded owl piece with its striking features.

To me, the owl brings happiness with its funny good looks.  Other than that, it is actually always use to promote "smartness".

I have folded my first origami owl using a Jacky HF Chan design as below.  Again, its a simple model but its like "poetry in motion" when making it.
