The woodpecker is a forest bird with a strong beak. The woodpecker is considered the most industrious bird, because he is reluctant to fly, but works hard. This small bird knocks on wood for hours, extracting its livelihood from the cracks and cracks in the tree bark.
There are many varieties of these birds. In this lesson you will draw a small woodpecker with bright colorful plumage. The woodpecker has a large head and a sharp, slightly curved beak.
