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

1. Find the official reference photo for the month and create a piece of art, any medium, using that photo.

2. On the last Wednesday of the month post your art on Bluesky using the hashtag #BirdWhisperer and we will repost your artwork!

Where are the Reference Photos?

The reference photos for each month in 2024 can be found here:

You can also create art from our previous year’s photos!
