    Origami passenger pigeons--a paper-folding project to try

    [I originally posted this in the Chit-Chat thread but it probably belongs here.]

    2014 is the 100th anniversary of the death of the last passenger pigeon in the entire world.
    There are no more passenger pigeons.

    So that people will be more careful not to let this happen to any more birds, the Audubon Society's monthly magazine, Audubon, includes a paper-folding (origami) project that doesn't take long at all and produces a nifty folded paper model of a passenger pigeon you can stand up and display. You can also add your name to the list of people who've taken part in the project. Organizations can order up quantities of these kits.

    Or you can download it for free. It probably works better if you have a color printer but there's a black-and-white version as well.

    I did one of these, and it turned out well. If I can do it, probably anyone can do it.

    Here is exactly what my pigeon turned out to look like:
