Start with an origami bird base. This is a commonly used base in origami so we've created a separate page of instructions for it. Or you can watch the video embedded below.

Fold the bottom points of the base up to meet the left and right corners.






Re-fold those two (2) points as shown. Now fold the upper flap downwards.






Then fold the piece in half lengthwise, so the crow's feet are on the inside. Next do an inside reverse fold to form the head and beak.






Now your origami crow is complete! It can easily be perched on the edge of a table (or book, etc.) as shown.
