My attempt at making a bird kite - with inspiration from George Peters' kites that I viewed online.

Actually this was my second attempt
by: Susan Drey

My first bird kite looked very similar. Ahh, but once again as in my tetrahedral, I had too much weight in the structure, and not enough sail expanse to lift it. So, on my second attempt, I added more sail area, and used the lightest skewers to reduce the structure weight. It flew quite nicely.

Realistic
by: Tim Parish

It's not easy making a stable bird kite on the first attempt. Yours looks quite realistic and it seems it has had some flying success as well. Well done.
