One word: WHEW!! :faint:
Finally, the third and last part of my Drawing Birds tutorial. It is absolutely essential to start with part 1, which deals with the actual drawing part, as parts 2 and 3 provide a guide of things to know about roughly 100 species.
Part 1:
Part 2:

This tutorial (all 3 parts) in book form: [link]
Full tutorial list: [link]

Things that should go without saying but I'll say anyway:
The birds are not to scale relatively to each other. I would have loved to make a diagram of bird sizes relatively to a human being, but I will have to leave it as a bonus for the tutorial book along with a few interesting species I had to cut out for space.
Obviously, not all species are represented. My semi-arbitrary selection includes:
- Birds that are likely to come up in illustration;
- Birds that are unique or unusual and may provide inspiration for fantasy;
- Birds I like too much not to include.

NO part of this tutorial may be reproduced, so don't even ask!! if you find it helpful and want to share it, simply link to it.

Awesome tutorial! I would like to point out though that hummingbirds do not survive exclusively on nectar, they also readily depend on insects for protein.

Thank you so much!!! Pigeons are my favorite kind of bird but I didn't really know how to draw them. When I make one, I'll put a link to this page for helping me.

Yes, once I'm done revising it :) It's taking ages because I'm adding dozens of birds, but I want to release the e-book as a finished version.
