Draw a Bird Day Roundup for February 2016

feb bird day banner nina 2

Once again we have a beautiful banner designed by Nina for our roundup.  And plenty of wonderful birds.

Pixolog, an interesting art blog, happened to feature a group of amazing paper birds by Johan Scherft on the 8th, and sent along their link to share.

Owls are always welcome, and Nina showed us how to draw one:

Jodi at Life In Between gave new meaning to the word parliament with her colorful creations.

Two cardinals made an appearance.  Carol at Carol’s Creative Papers treated us to equal representation for the females of the species (https://carolscreativepapers.wordpress.com/2016/02/08/draw-a-bird-day-february-2016/) and Myriam at Mry’s Bytes drew not only a cardinal, but a yellow-headed blackbird (http://myrsbytes.com/2016/02/08/draw-a-bird-day-the-cardinal-and-the-martian-eyeball/)

More red:  A vermilian flycatcher from Deborah at Cicadian Reflections (https://circadianreflections.wordpress.com/2016/02/06/vermilion-flycatcher-male-in-watercolor-1/?c=4627#comment-4627), a rose-breasted grosbeak from Snehal Kank (https://snehalkank.wordpress.com/2016/02/08/bird-day-rose-breasted-grosbeak/), and European robins from Lance at Weisser Watercolors (https://weisserwatercolours.com/2016/02/09/belated-draw-a-bird-day/).

Charlie O Doodlewashed an “F” for flamingo as part of his February journey through the alphabet.

And Laura at Create Art Everyday continued her “100 Faces Challenge” with a peacock face surrounded by feathers.

Beverly dyer at The Art Prescription posted a bluebird with a poem.

But black and white makes for a beautiful bird painting too. Josh at Too Much White Paper shows us how with his chiffchaff.

February seems to inspire a longing for the sea.  There were a number of seabirds posted.  Teresa at One Good Thing drew black necked stilt (https://teresarobeson.wordpress.com/2016/02/08/birdday-on-wordpress/), Susan Feniak painted a pelican (https://susanfeniakart.wordpress.com/2016/02/08/draw-a-bird-day-4/), Kestral Art linked us to a page of cormorants (https://kestrelart.wordpress.com/living-dinosaurs/), and Judith Garnett contributed a kingfisher (https://judithgarnett.wordpress.com/2016/02/08/kingfisher-oil-on-canvas-board-8-x-10-inches/).

Sarah at First Night Design created a lovely birdcage blossom clock.

And then we have those birds that have flown in from the land of Imagination:  Jill’s Art Journal found a Dipsy Doodle (https://artjillkuhn.wordpress.com/2016/02/08/a-dipsy-doodle-bird/), and Sharon Mann Illustrations created a unique collage bird (https://mondaytuesdaywednesday.wordpress.com/2016/02/07/draw-a-bird-day-february-8/)

We also had some Early Birds, who posted the end of January:  a pheasant from Rebecca Evans Create (https://wordpress.com/read/post/id/82624701/1339), and snowbirds from JM Landin at Red Newt Gallery (https://rednewtgallery.wordpress.com/2016/01/25/snowbird-shape-shifters/).

Oh, and I did starlings.

The usual thanks to A-Wing and A-Way for the original Draw-a-Bird Day inspiration and continuing posts on all things avian.

I hope I didn’t leave anyone out…if I did, accept my apologies and put your link in the comments and I’ll edit you in!
