In the Order of the Birds, the diversity, coloration, size and environmental niches these animal adapt to never ceases to amaze me. Whether its owls, songbirds, penguins or woodpeckers I enjoy drawing these animals a great deal. When I draw them, I always try and learn as much as I can about the animal. Even after years of study of their anatomy, I've only scratched the surface of thousands of species that are out there. Of course the most prominent feature of the birds are their feathers. I've spent a lot of time trying to get the patterns down, which are very consistent in the animals. If the feathers don't sit right on the body, it looks odd and the drawing doesn't work. While I try and create as many illustrations of birds as I can, I can't draw every species. But if you have one in mind that you don't see listed here please send me an email to make a suggestion!
Birds - the Class of Aves - are animals who are feathered, winged, bipedal, warm-blooded and lay eggs. Based upon the fossil evidence, many scientists believe that birds are today's descendents of the dinosaurs. There are about 10,000 species of birds known to science alive on the planet today. The smallest is the bee hummingbird at a mere 2 inches (5 cm) and the largest is the ostrich which grows to 9 feet (2.74 m). Birds have no teeth, a four chambered heart and a very lightweight but durable skeleton, generally with hollow bones. All living species of birds have wings in some form, and only the extinct Moa did not. They are bright animals, with parrots and corvids (crows, jays, ravens, magpies) being especially smart and excellent at problem solving. Many birds migrate hundred or thousands of miles each year, usually for warmer climates to breed. Birds are one of the few animals that are found on all seven continents on the planet.
