Happy “Draw a Picture of a Bird” Day!

Happy Draw a Picture of a Bird Day! The holiday that sounds fake-pretend but is very real, and we’re just chuffed about it.

As fun and silly as this holiday sounds, it actually has really touching origins involving a WWII soldier, his niece, and drawings of birds she brought him in the hospital.

There aren’t enough excuses in the world to just sit down and draw a bird. So in honor of Draw a Picture of a Bird day, we decided to do just that!

Feeling inspired? Leave your bird drawing in the comments below!

The rare “Lesser Barn Pugbit” as Eric calls it. When asked to comment, he said: “The Lesser Barn Pugbit: What of it? Just let it happen”
