Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Chickadee Bird" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle as a guide for the top part of the chickadee's body. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave enough room on the sides for the chickadee's head and tail.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the top left side of the body as a guide for the bird's head. This circle should be about half the size of the first one. The edges of the two circles should overlap just a bit.
Step 3: Inside the small circle, draw two intersecting lines. These lines will help you place the chickadee's facial features later.
Step 4: Draw a small triangle-like shape on the left side of the head as a guide for the chickadee's beak.
