I've been using Apologia's Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day, and enjoying it very much. This week we added some bird drawing lessons and I was impressed with the results. The book we used is The Laws Guide to Drawing Birds. This book is packed full of wonderful information, diagrams and assignments. I think it could be used for a whole year of art and science lessons just in itself. I highly recommend it. We have used some of John Muir Laws You-tube videos on drawing from nature and found them helpful. This week we did a two-page demonstration--assignment with 18 steps to drawing a warbler from this book. The book has comprehensive information on bird anatomy along with detailed art lessons specifically geared for drawing birds.
