The Bird Whisperers was an idea hatched by artists Amanda Makepeace and Melissa Gay. Each month, our members do a piece of art inspired by the same reference photo, and post to social media with #BirdWhisperer. We welcome artists of all ages and skill levels!

Official Rules

Posting day is the last Wednesday of the month. Artists keep their work hidden until it’s posting day so we don’t influence one another.  

Post your art on Twitter using the hashtag #BirdWhisperer and tag us @BirdWhisperers so we can Retweet your art!

Where are the Reference Photos?

The reference photos for each month in 2022 can be found here:
