Draw-a-Bird Day for March brings smallest and largest birds
We got hummingbirds and eagles and lots in between. Special tribute to Eileen, who sent drew two birds, one done digitally and one done the old-fashioned way.
Also, special note that two of the birds are drawn by youngsters.
Here are this month’s birds.
Eileen Leahy: Takahe [a New Zealand bird]. iPhone 4s app.
