Beautiful Old Pictures Of Birds

On August 14, 2016 by Lazer Horse

Here at Lazer Horse Towers we’re all big fans of birds. Whether it’s the strange bemused stare of the potoo, or taking photos of birds hanging out with plastic dinosaurs, we like to get involved with our feathered friends.

I recently came across some old drawings and paintings of birds; I thought it was only right to share them, because they are lovely.
