FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Learning to draw takes practice and time, so if the project does not turn out perfect do not give up and keep on drawing in a short time you will be making beautiful pictures. I have a lot of projects come back often and try a few more.

How To Draw An Egret Bird Free Worksheet


The body of the egret is a large oval with smaller oval below it. Draw this first step lightly so you can erase later. The neck is like a large letter "S," use two lines for this so you have a back and a front. The head is like a long triangle beside an oval.

The large body oval is going to be the wing. There are some feathers at the bottom, draw them with curved lines. Erase the top line of the oval and darken the other parts. The belly is covered with long soft feathers, draw them as short bent lines.  The front of the neck has some long soft feathers so draw them as curved lines too,

The eye is a circle with a white dot in the middle. The beak has a line going across it to divide the top from the bottom. The back has some shadow and there is a shadow going down the center of the back where the two wings meet. The legs point a little backward at the knee.  It is easiest to hide the feet in the water or tall grass.  The far leg is darker since it is in shadow.
