Vintage black and white drawing of birds leaving the roost. If you’ve ever seen birds flock to their roost in the early evening or leave again in the morning it’s a sight that you’ll not likely forget. As the birds swirl and twirl through the air, it looks like some sort of acrobatic show of synchronized flight. This simple little drawing shows one bird fairly well detailed perched on a branch and eight others in flight with diminishing amounts of detail.
I love it when I find vintage materials like 1890 Baby’s Annual Pictures and Stories for Little People. It was published oh so long ago that it is now completely in the public domain. It’s too bad the original artist(s) weren’t identified but that is why this book falls under the 120 years post publication aspect of copyright law.
