Step 1

Start you drawing of a Cardinal bird by drawing the beak. Draw lightly in pencil to begin, as this will make it easier to erase any mistakes you might make.

Step 2

Now add the eye of the Cardinal, and the pattern on the face.

Step 3

Continue by drawing the line of the chest, then finish the outline of the head and back.

After you finish your Cardinal bird drawing why not color it in like this!
