29 Black and White Bird Clipart
Today we have a large, striking collection of Black and White Bird Clipart! These magnificent Engravings are scanned from early Natural History Books, Magazines, etc. in my collection. I just love the detail of them! We have Flying Birds, Birds Perched on Branches and on Fancy Wooden Stands, some Pairs of Feathered Friends, and a few unusual types. These would be great for your Spring Craft Projects. There is even a lovely silhouette to transfer onto DIY projects. I think any of these delightful creatures would be nice to use on some pretty Handmade Note Cards or Stationery. Many would also be fun to color in or paint with watercolors.
Flying Bird Clipart
Above we have a Bunting flying through the air. This is from a Little Birds section in an early dictionary! He has a strong, sturdy looking tail and wings. He appears to possibly be gliding through the air here. Must be fun!
This is a lovely drawing of a Swallow. It is an old engraving, also from an early dictionary. Those folded back wings sure look like they could propel the bird really fast in the air! He looks to possibly be swooping down for a meal as a ‘bird of prey’ to me.
This fellow is a Barn Swallow soaring in the sky. He looks like he is on a mission. I love the intricate detail of the wings and tail. So nicely done!
Vintage Bird Perched on a Branch Engravings
Above is a lovely Vintage Nightingale Image! This beautiful bird engraving was scanned from an early Antique Natural History book! The graphic shows the Nightingale perched upon a charming nest with three eggs inside. The nest is resting on a branch all snuggled in with surrounding leaves. So darling!
This wonderful antique bird engraving was scanned from a Circa 1868 Children’s magazine! It is a beautiful illustration of a bird perched on a sturdy branch with leaves all around. This one also has such impressive detail and symmetry, and what a lovely bird!
Here we have a Stock Bird Image! Above is an engraving of a charming guy perched on a branch with a delightful Pastoral scene in the background. It comes from a very early Natural History book in my collection. This book isn’t dated but my research indicated that it was published between the late 1700’s to the early 1800’s. It’s quite a rare book I believe!
This is a Sweet little Bird Illustration! Featured above is a Thrush, who is perched on a lovely Maple tree branch! This little picture was scanned from a darling Circa 1922 Children’s Bird book. It’s a fairly simple black and white drawing, but perfect nonetheless!
Here we have a lovely Engraved cutie. It is a Wren perched on a branch. I like how chunky and compact he looks! He has interesting tear-shaped dark circles around his eyes.
Shown above is a nice illustration of a sweet, pretty bird sitting on the branch of a tree. The branch has lots of leaves. He appears to be peering at something in the distance to me.
This cute Spring Graphic is from an 1880’s Farming magazine. Above is a darling tiny bird on a branch. Such a precious little thing!
Above is such a nice Royalty Free Bird Image! Shown is an impressive engraving of a bird standing on the ground. He has such a sweet face, doesn’t he?! His white face makes an interesting contrast to the wide dark line surrounding the neck. Quite photogenic!
Here is an illustration of a cute little bird who has a bit of grass in its beak, perhaps to start building a nest with! Scanned from a wonderful Circa 1868 Children’s book, it is yet another superb image!
This lovely bird image is a Riverside Bunting. It is from a Circa 1875 Science book that has wonderful engravings in it! Don’t you love his cute face with those large, captivating eyes? Charming!This cute Vintage Bird Drawing from an early Natural History book has a bird on the branch. It is a Sparrow. The spotted belly is distinct and unique for this series of birds.
Shown above is a lovely Vintage Bird Graphic displaying the engraving of a Swallow. He is perched on a large branch. I am intrigued by the pointed wings and tail feathers.
Here is another Vintage Bird Engraving from an early Natural History book! Known as a Swift, he has a long body and extra long wings, which appropriately make for ‘swift’ flying. I’ll bet he appears intimidating to potential prey!
Antique Pair of Birds Illustrations
This is an elegant Public Domain Pair of Birds Illustration! Shown above is a sweet drawing of two birds. Resting on the leafy branch of a tree, the bottom bird is looking sweetly at the bird above. This is a vintage engraving.
This is a pretty engraving of two birds in a lush tree from an early Natural History book. It seems to be a Pine or Fir tree. It looks like the one below is trying the get the attention of the other.
Vintage Bird on Stand Images
These are cute Vintage Bird on Stand Images! They show a sweet little bird perched on some sort of wooden stand. They come from a very rare Printer’s book in my collection. There’s no date in the book, but my best guess would be that it’s from around the 1880’s. Many of the pictures in the book are of children’s toys, so I’m not sure if these are meant to be a toy or the real thing.
Quirky Bird Head Graphics
Above are some quirky looking little bird heads from an old dictionary. The one on top has two curvy lines across its head and beak. Tone below appears to have several squiggly dark lines on its head, and connecting lines surrounding the outer eye.
Black and White Bird Clip art
Here we have a fancy Ladies Calling Card! This one comes from an 1880’s Rubber Stamp catalog. I think this one is a real charmer with all of the ornate scrolls and the bird that’s ready to take flight! The original was made for a woman named Fannie Menkey, but I’ve removed the name so that you can add your own, or whatever you like!
Old Black and White Bird Diagram
Above is a diagram of the external parts of a bird from an early dictionary! Look at all those different parts! Numbered 1-47 on this old engraving, who knew there were so many parts?!
Unusual Black and White Bird Clip Art
This is a wonderful engraving of a Cockatoo from an early Natural History book is truly captivating. My first impression was that the head with curved beak actually resembles an Elephant! This one also reminds me that every bird species has its own unique configuration of feathers and patterns.
Such a funny looking bird, but also so cute! Above is a Vintage Guinea Fowl Image! That is one big bird! This is an antique engraving scanned from a Circa 1868 Children’s Magazine.
