I couldn’t find a pattern for a crow so I made one up. He will fly like crazy when the west Texas wind blows hard. The wing closest to the wind direction always turns faster. By the way. “Why did the crow sit on the telephone line?” Because he wanted to make a long distance “CAW CAW”

Put one on the mail box and the other on the fence.

LOL..cute ! I’ve been trying to make a Snoopy Sopwith Camel whirly. I only want the prop to spin; so far it’s still not finished because I was trying to make the prop look real. I think your crow is adorable. I’m gonna try that next.

I used a large head nail with a washer backing it and drilled a exact match hole. Then used my favorite Gorilla glue. Just remember that Gorilla glue expands so use just a little or you will glue the wings solid on the nail. (Been there done that)
