Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Parrot puppet tips?

I've got a few pictures of Albrecht's stork and the control bar on my website at:

The top row of pictures are the stork and its control bar.  For Albrecht's stork, the control bar is really the key to opening the wings out and pulling the wings back in.  The construction of the wings isn't too complicated, but the control bar is quite the machine.  The portion of the control bar for the wings starts above Albrecht's hand.  The complicated portion below controls the legs.
