Birds of a feather

Scientists and naturalists rely on art to identify birds--in fact, the most popular bird books still use paintings instead of photographs because this allows the artists to emphasize important field markings. In this activity, students will produce art in this style. Can we draw field markings so that a new birder could use our art to tell the difference between female and male kestrels? Is there anything else about kestrels we can communicate through art?
