  Measuring 18 3/4" in length, with an 11/16" sound chamber diameter and 4 direction/tuning holes, this 6 holed, Arroyo Willow (Salix lasiolepis) unsplit branch flute, has been accurately tuned, with a clear, bright yet warm voice, to a high C minor pentatonic scale, playing three upper octave notes.  Crushed turquoise has been inlaid into all knot holes.  Deer lacing with turquoise and brass beads holds the bird to the nest. To help prevent wet-out, the bird has been fitted with a redwood shoe, for it's absorbant qualities and a drain hole, covered by the deer lacing, has been designed into the bottom of the air chamber.  The branch for this flute was gathered sustainably, with respect and gratitude, along San Marcos Creek, in San Diego County, CA, amongst a wild grove of Arroyo Willow trees.   California Indians found many uses for the wonderful willow tree, including bows, baskets, shelters, clothing, fish traps and medicines derived from salicin in the willow's bark, the original aspirin.
