A Painted Bird?

Today is Draw A Bird day so I wanted to draw a bird with LOTS of color!

I discovered this common finch called a “Painted Bunting” whose colors look like he was painted with a child’s set of paints:

I did not paint this artful bird, instead I used color pencils and Tombow markers.  I added some collage for fun.  After all, a bird this colorful should be attending a party!

They sing a lovely song too!  Check out this link if you’d like to learn more about them:

Happy Birding!  🙂
