Throughout the summer birding project, we have been encouraging new birders to try different ways to observe birds. Sketching is one way to deepen your observation skills.
We asked a master illustrator, David Sibley, to share tips on how to draw, and we invited readers to share their attempts. Below is a selection of what you sent us, along with insights into how it changed your birding experience.
Tell us in the comments: Have you tried sketching? Has it changed the way you observe birds?
