Step 1: First draw the beak which is a small pointed curved triangle with a dot on it for the nostril.

Step 2: Now draw a semi-circular head above the beak towards the right of the beak. Draw a small curved line beneath the beak for the neck.

Step 3: Now draw the eye by drawing a smal almond-shape and a dot inside.

Step 4: Draw the body starting from below the neck. Draw a semi-circular belly then continue with a fuzzy line slightly upwards for the fur.

Step 5: Draw the wing now by drawing a fuzzy horizontally diagonal line in the middle of the belly and draw lines below this line like ruffles for the fur. This is one wing. Draw ruffled line above this wing and join it to the head.

Step 6: Now we draw the tail which is a triangular ruffled part on the right of the wing, at the end of the body.

Step 7: Now we draw two very thin straw-like legs below the belly. At the end of both legs draw small slant triangles for feet.
