Did you know that the 8th of April is the “Draw A Bird Day”? A day, when people all over the world draw birds for everybodies pleasure and in memory of a girl called Dorie. Read more about this tradition here on wikipedia.

I drew an European Goldfinch (lat.: carduelis carduelis), a tiny bird of 12 to 13 centimeters. He is sitting on a grassy rush (lat.: butomus umbellatus). Did you also draw a bird? You are welcome to share your link in the comments.

Wußtet Ihr, daß der 8.April der “Draw A Bird Day” ist? Ein Tag, an dem Menschen auf der ganzen Welt Vögel zeichnen, um andere zu erfreuen und um an ein kleines Mädchen namens Dorie zu erinnern. Auf Wikipedia könnt Ihr mehr über diese Tradition lesen.

Ich habe einen Stieglitz gezeichnet (lat.: carduelis carduelis), einen winzigen Vogel von 12 bis 13 Zentimeter Größe. Er sitzt auf einer Schwanenblume (lat.: butomus umbellatus). Habt Ihr auch einen Vogel gezeichnet? Ihr seid herzlich eingeladen, den Link zu Euerem Vogel in den Kommentaren zu teilen.
