Today I will share with you a handful of the birds I created as part of my personal drawing challenge, #365birds. All of these birds had been drawn during March, 2023.
Having started the challenge on November 3, 2022, I have not missed one day of drawing since that date. Before I began, I found the varieties of 365 birds from all over the world, and have a strip of paper in a jar with each of the 365 birds' names. Every morning, I randomly grab one of these strips, and that is my bird for the day.
I find some of the birds to be much more challenging than I'd expected. A few of those challenges show up in today's posts. Maybe you can discover which ones I considered challenging.
As I always do, above each bird portrait, I will include the name of the bird, as well as where in the world they can be found.
