Birbfest 2022

Birbfest 2022 is here! What is Birbfest? It is an art challenge to draw/craft/create birds through the month of January. You can use any medium you want, skip any birds you don't feel like doing and jump in whenever 😊 The goal main goal is to learn about some new birds, draw/craft/create and have fun!

The challenge starts January 1st. I hope you will join in - even if it's just for one birb!
