Birds are a favorite subject to draw because so many exist making them familiar to us. Most have a similar structure and they are all easy to draw.

Put a small circle at the end of an oval and the basics of a bird are there. Add wings, tail, beak, and eyes and smooth out the area connecting the two basic shapes and you have drawn a bird.

Study them from real life from all angles to see how the shapes change in relation to each other or use the Internet's free-sharing websites to find pictures to study.
