Papercutting: Fraktur Design

This pattern is another from Stewart and Sally Walton’s Papercutting book.

According to Wikpedia, Fraktur is both a style of lettering and a highly artistic and elaborate illuminated folk art created by the Pennsylvania Dutch. Also, most Fraktur were created between 1740 and 1860.

I'm not sure what kind of birds they might be; do you think perhaps ravens?
