Some of the bark has been left on this unsplit Toyon (Heteromeles arbutifolia) branch flute, creating a beautiful contrast with the finely finished wood grain, small knots having been inlaid with crushed Sleeping Beauty Turquoise.  Measuring 20 5/8" in length, with a 3/4" sound chamber diameter, and acurately tuned to a sweet and clear G minor pentatonic, it plays a wonderfully passionate and controlable warble on the fundamental, also playing at least three upper octave notes.  Elk lacing with Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and red horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest.  To aid against wetout, the bird has been fitted with a redwood shoe and the air chamber has a drain hole, covered by the lacing.  The branch for this one of a kind flute was gathered with love, care and respect along the banks of San Marcos Creek in southern California.
