Add a touch of spring to the house with these printable bird sketches.
The last few days I have been woke up but the birds chirping as the sun rises. It’s how I know spring is coming! So today is more spring decor for the home.
Last year I created these birdhouse plans art for spring and loved them so much. So this year I decided to make matching bird sketches.
These bird sketches were designed to look like vintage sketches from a birdwatcher’s notebook. They have simple details about each bird in a sketched hand.
But the center of the sketch is a simple sketch, and slightly colored, drawing of each bird. And they turned out amazing!
The Birds of Spring
I know there are many different birds that represent spring in different parts of the world, and even throughout the US. But I picked 4 that are more common. And these 4 have their own distinctness to create a beautiful collage if used together.
Of course I had to include the Robin as the first bird of spring. As soon as I see that red bellied bird picking through the yard I know spring is coming.
And then I added the goldfinch and blue jay because they are so pretty and distinct.
Then for the last spring bird I included the simple wren. These birds are everywhere, jumping and chirping around. They are so cute and entertaining to watch, so I felt they needed a turn in the spotlight.
You can choose to print out all four birds to make a collage on your wall, mantel, or bookcase. Or you can print just your favorite 1 or 2.
Or even better, mix the spring birds with the birdhouse sketches to make a really big art wall. I think that is what I am going to do…. I just need a few more picture frames.
