A black and white bird is the focus of this vintage flying bird drawing.
The bird reminds me a bit of a swallow with it’s long pointed wings and split tail feathers. It might be another species. The picture isn’t all that detailed but I think that’s part of what makes it so interesting.
This bird drawing is one of many wonderful vintage images you can find here on Reusable Art from a vintage children’s magazine image that is no longer being published. It, along with all of the others, is in the public domain and ready to be downloaded.
This vintage drawing and a number of others appeared in St. Nicholas Magazine for Boys and Girls, Vol. 5, September 1878, No. 11.
