Measuring 20" in length, with four tuning holes, this unsplit Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens ) branch flute is accurately tuned and voiced to a sweet and stable G minor pentatonic scale, playing 3 upper octave notes. Much of the characteristic red bark has been left on, contrasting beautifully with the exposed and finely finished wood grain. All knot holes have been inlaid with crushed turquoise. To aid against wet-out (the build-up of breath condensation that can clog the windway of the flute) the bird has been fitted with a redwood heartwood shoe, for its absorption qualities, and a drain hole has been designed into the air chamber. Elk lacing with turquoise and red horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest, while covering the drain hole.
