Pattern Notes
The Body, Tail, Wings and Beak are worked separately and sewn together. When working increases on Tail and Wings, work into the bottom bumps of chains.

When changing colors, work up to the last pullthrough of the stitch before the color change. With the new color, complete the stitch.

The Body and Beak are worked in continuous rounds. Do not join at the end of rounds. Use a removable stitch marker to mark the first stitch of the round and move the marker up with each subsequent round.
