  This branch flute is 26 1/2"of solid, unsplit Poplar (Populus), with some of the bark left on, contrasting nicely with the exposed and finely finished wood grain.  The underlayer of bark has a wonderful grain of its own, with it's own colors and paterns, one reason I like working with the bark of a branch, to show off that seldom appreciated beauty.  All knot holes have been inlaid with crushed turquoise.  Four tuning holes were added, giving this fairly light weight flute an elegant length. The diameter of the sound chamber is 1", allowing for the voicing of a sweet, moderately loud and stable E minor pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, playing two upper octave notes.  Elk lacing with turquoise and horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest, the bird fitted with a redwood heartwood shoe as an aid against wetout.  The branch for this flute was gathered green from the ground when a winter storm blew over a Poplar tree at Discovery Lake, in San Marcos, CA.
