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, at precisely 5:00 p.m. EST. Artists keep their work hidden until it’s posting time so we don’t influence one another. To have your art included in our monthly Facebook album, email your internet-ready file to at least one hour before posting time. Your art will be added to our Official Facebook Page.

Please Include this info:

  • Title by “your name”
  • Size: 
  • Medium:
  • Website (if you have one)

Visit us on Facebook!

Same rules apply for posting on Twitter! Tag us @BirdWhisperers and use the hashtag #BirdWhisperer and we’ll Retween your post.
