Picked up a strange raven

Good day! Help with experienced advice. A couple of days ago, they picked up a crow (well, or a crow) on the street. The bird was calmly given in hand, from which we decided that it was simply frozen. After they brought her home and settled in the aviary, we began to observe some oddities in her behavior. Namely: - The bird is absolutely easy to handle; - Has a very strange gait; - Constantly cowards and shakes his head. An example in the video.

No trauma or visible damage was found during visual inspection. What could happen to him? How to treat? We have one veterinarian, and in her they looked at us like idiots, saying that they did not deal with birds. Thank you in advance for your help.

Find a clinic in your city in case the bird looks sick or injured!

Don't pick up fledglings (a young bird just starting to fly out of the nest)! They are learning to fly! Parents are watching them!

If you have picked up a bird of prey (owl / hawk / falcon) - who is it and what to feed it with.

- Multiple off-topic posts.

- Refrain from provocations.

Following these simple rules will help make the league cozy and tube-like.

This is not a crow, this is a hooded crow.

How to distinguish from cupronickel?

Despite the external similarity, both alloys are different. The most important difference lies in their composition. Cupronickel does not consist of 3 main components, like nickel silver, but of 2 - copper (up to 80%), nickel (up to 18%) and minor additions in the form of iron and manganese. Cupronickel contains no zinc.

Nickel silver, in comparison with cupronickel, also has a slightly higher strength and resistance to temperature extremes and external influences. Cupronickel objects in humid air quickly acquire a dark shade. Nickel silver does not darken for a long time, so it does not need frequent care, like cupronickel.

In appearance, nickel silver does not differ from cupronickel: both alloys are similar to silver. It is possible to determine from which alloy a particular product is made only by marking. Cupronickel items are marked with 2 letters MN (copper-nickel) or "Melkh", as well as similar markings in a foreign language.

Cleaning Methods

Cup-holders are cup holders, dishes, jewelry (earrings, rings), coins, candlesticks. You can clean and get rid of any contaminants using available tools such as vinegar, ammonia. These products do not harm metal at all, do not cause corrosive processes, if cleaned correctly.

Table 1. Folk remedies

Remove severe blackness with concentrated ammonia

Place the cutlery / jewelry in the solution or cover with concentrated pharmacy ammonia and leave for 1.5-2 hours, then rinse out

After washing spoons and forks from blackness, be sure to rinse them to stop contact of the selected product with metal, and then rub until shiny and place in a prepared dry place for safe storage.

Why do cupronickel devices darken

Most often, the reason for changing the color of cupronickel cutlery is not so much dirt, as oxidation processes that cause the formation of patina. The more air is exposed to cupronickel spoons and forks, the more they oxidize, and, as a result, darken.

In addition to this reason, it is possible to note the effect of high humidity on the color change of cupronickel products. Most often this is manifested by the appearance of a kind of stains and spots on their surface. Improper care leads to the fact that the appearance of the products changes, and their further use becomes unpleasant.

What is needed for plastic suede floristry

For self-production of flowers from foamiran, you don't have to buy special equipment and tools. You already have everything basic at home:

Scissors - necessary for cutting parts, preferably sharp. It is convenient to cut small petals with nail scissors. Iron - needed to form bends, create volume. Under the influence of heat, the vom becomes plastic, it is easy for it to give the desired shapes, volumes and bends. After cooling, the shape remains, the detail seems to freeze

It is important to dry well so as not to lose what has been achieved. Glue gun - useful for joining parts. Some workshops require clear superglue or silicone craft glue. Molds - make it easier and faster to create realistic petals and leaves with many veins and plant-specific patterns

Molds need to be selected taking into account the flower being made. Otherwise, you get a rose with chamomile petals. Foil - required for making the base for assembling the bud, lightweight, therefore does not weigh down the product.

Of additional materials in the MK are often found:

  • wire to form the stem;
  • tape to hide the wire;
  • stamens - to decorate the middle of the flower;
  • beads, seed beads, various accessories.

Chiffon flower

The next step is to make flowers from chiffon.

A sketch of peony petals is performed using the kazanshi technique.

Let's move on to the creation process. We fold the chiffon eight times, and then fasten it with pins along the edges. After that, we apply cardboard petals and outline the edges with a special marker, which is washed off. Cut out the petals and then arrange them in size. After that, we process each petal above the candle, give them a rounded shape. Next, we begin to collect the flower. Take the styrofoam (it needs to be used so that the styrofoam holds the needle onto which the petals will be strung from the smallest to the largest). In the end, we have got an unusually beautiful and delicate peony. He looks like he is alive. If you do not understand some of the stages of creating a flower, then we suggest watching the video at the end of the article.

Gorgeous Rose

Flowers, twigs, leaves

The simplest flower can be linked according to the pattern shown in the figure below.

If you want a bigger flower, then instead of two lifting loops, knit three loops, and for the petals, knit columns not with one, but with two crochets.

The flower will be even larger if you knit four lifting loops, and for the petals you will knit columns with three crochets.

Leaves also fit very easily. If you want to make the leaf larger, then increase the number of loops of the initial chain and, accordingly, the number of double crochets in the middle of the leaf.

The diagram shows a fragment of a twig. You can knit a branch as long as you want by simply adding the required amount of leaves. You can also decrease or increase the distance between the leaves by tying more air loops between them.
