I used a 1" x 16" x 3" pine board for this project purchased from Home Depot. Trace the crow template onto the board. (Crow template available on my blog post or search crow template on Google and enlarge to the size you want, print out, then trace onto the board.)

Trace Crow Template on a Board
Cut out the Crow
Use a jigsaw to cut out the crow. Be sure to clamp down your board and wear eye protection.
Sand, Paint, Add a Hanger
After cutting out the crow, sand it on both sides with a orbital sander. Then sand the sides with the orbital sander. Use sand paper for the intricate areas on the edges of the crow. Paint the crow black on both sides. Staple a rope to the crow for a hanger. Hot glue would also work. Be sure the crow is balanced to hang the way you want it to hang before stapling in place.
