A mother hen looks ready to defend her baby checks against some uninvited guests. We found 13 baby chicks in this black and white bird drawing. How many can you find? I so enjoy the work of Harrison Weir (1824-1906), he has such a flair with adding a bit of humor to so many of his images. This bird image is appropriately enough from the children’s book Bird Tales from around 1889.
