Measuring 20" in length, this Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana) unsplit branch flute is clearly and soulfully voiced to a mid range G#m pentatonic scale, modes 1&4, playing two upper register notes. Most of the bark has been removed, exposing the finely finished, light colored sapwood of the branch, a streak of the red colored heartwood showing just south of the sound hole. Crushed Turquoise has been inlaid in several of the knots. Deer leather lacing with Turquoise and Brass beads secures the bird to its nest. To help prevent wet-out, the bird has been fitted with a cedar heartwood shoe, and a drain hole, covered by the lacing, has been designed into the bottom of the air chamber. The branch for this flute was gathered from a relative's ranch in Oklahoma.
