A while ago I bought these birds at Ikea. They are Christmas decorations called "Yrsnö". I'm very fond of them and I like that you can have them hanging around during the rest of the year too.
Since the birds are made out of paper they are very easy to make your own alternative versions of. If you have some thicker paper you can use it to make a bird body and if you have normal paper you can use it to fold the wings. To insert the wings you can just make a rektangular hole in the bird body. White paper doilies or tissue paper in different colours instead of normal paper are also nice alternatives to use to fold the wings in.
