I have used Husking for the head and tail. For the male's tail feathers I fringed a 3mm . blue strip slightly and pasted to the husked tail feather.
I created the branched and the bird's feet by rolling the paper on a toothpick like a cylinder.
The leaves are my own creation. I just cut it in shape and folded it at the center and then folded it like a fan . I love the look.
The big mistake I made was not thinking of the background before quilling the birds. Then I had to quill round the birds to create the backdrop which took me a lot of time. Beginners please don't make the same mistake.
