  Most of the bark has been left on this unsplit English Walnut (Juglans regia) branch flute, contrasting nicely with the exposed and finely finished wood grain.  Bark crevices have been inlaid with crushed serpentine stone, giving an impression of moss or lichen growing on the right side of the branch.  Measuring 15" in length, with a 1/2" sound chamber diameter, it is tuned to a high d minor pentatonic, modes 1 & 4, with a cheerfully bright and sweet voice, also playing the Gypsy scale as well as 3 upper octave notes.  Deer lacing with serpentine and brass beads holds the bird to the nest, the bird fitted with a redwood heartwood shoe to aid against wetout.  The branch for this flute was gathered within the San Marcos Creek watershed of California, amongst a wild grove of Walnut trees.
