Description: Birds are wonderful animals because there is so many different types of specie of bird in existence all around the world. Everyday I am more and more surprised or amazed at the different kinds of birds there are. I recently received a request to do a tutorial on “how to draw a Kingfisher bird” step by step. Now by the name of this animal you would think that this bird is big and might even be the king of all birds right? Well that is not the case with the Kingfisher. Kingfisher birds are small in size and very colorful. They can be found close to water like rivers, and lakes, and there is almost one hundred different types of Kingfisher bird species found all over the word. Now just because I said they can be found close to water doesn’t mean that is the only place you will see a Kingfisher. These birds dwell in both wetlands and woodland areas. Their diets consist mainly on fish, but they do also eat insects, frogs, and crayfish. The birds that live in the woodland areas will obviously eat more reptiles than fish, but they do still fancy a fish as well. Now remember when I said that there is a bunch of different species of this type of bird? Well to be more exact there is three different types; there is the “river Kingfishers”, the Tree Kingfishers”, and lastly the “water Kingfishers”. All three different types of fisher species are basically the same in size and build. They all have sharp looking pointed beaks, short legs, stubby tails, and big heads. They do differ in color and marking patterns. The crown of Kingfisher bird will flair and look like an actual crown of a king. They fish like experts which basically means that they are king fishermen. If you combine the two you get one word of what their kind is, a Kingfisher bird. The tutorial that I will lay out for you teaches you how to draw a Kingfisher bird step by step”. The way to complete this lesson is easy, just follow all the steps and read the instructions. Once you are done you will have created one of the coolest birds in existence. I have to dolt out of this tutorial for now but I will join you with another soon. So keep those pencils moving, and have fun. Peace out fellow artists of DragoArt.com!
