Let’s jump into the steps to make the Kingfisher bird drawing.

Step 1 – Draw three “rectangular shapes”. First, draw a big “rectangular shape” with a height of 3.7cm & a width of 10.7cm for wood at the bottom, then make the ‘2nd rectangular shape’ with a height of 7cm & width of 6.8cm over the big rectangle for back & belly. Next, make the 3rd rectangle with a height of 3.3cm & a width of 5.2cm for the bird’s head, then draw a “right triangle” with a height of 4.7cm & a diagonal of 5cm for the bird’s beak.
