Art on Friday; Birds

I love birds. As long as I can remember I am a bird watcher really. My garden is full of birds as well, mostly sparrows and pigeons but still. Time for an art blog about these beautiful creatures of the sky. And since I love the 19th century art, most paintings will be around that century.
