Using the bird for art


I clean a couple of car dealership buildings in the morning during the week. The windows do not stay clean so I don’t think this is the problem but Savannah (she works there also) and I have talked about this and we think that possibly the birds are drawn to a tree that is just inside the door. The birds must see it and fly toward it and hit the window and that’s all she wrote….dead. The third bird in a month and a half has perished in the same area. I feel bad just throwing the body into the trash, so I thought I might use it first for some pictures. Kind of donating the body. I wrapped it up in paper towels and then newspaper and put it in my purse. At 9:00 that evening I remembered I had it in there and thought I needed to use it and then dispose of the body. I have a hard time drawing bird feet so I especially took many pictures of the little sparrows feet.


Then the little beak.


His feather design is beautiful.


Feet placement and feather designs.


Feather design and feet placement and the way the side feathers lay. I took 26 pictures so I used his body well. I wrapped him up and gently placed the birdie in the trash. Tomorrow I believe I will move the tree. Hopefully there will not be anymore casualties…..
