Free Vintage Bird Pictures

I love bird pictures — almost as much as I love the birds themselves. The vintage bird pictures below are particularly wonderful because of the saturated colors and storybook quality. Birds are an eternal and universal theme, so I’m sure the images below will come in handy for craft projects. They would look particularly great in decoupaged works or as greeting cards.

Some of these vintage bird pictures contain birds that are easily recognizable, such as the eagle and the owl. The rest are harder to peg, unless you’re an avid birder. Some of these birds are so outrageously colorful and interestingly patterned, they seem like they might have been created by Dr. Seuss. But that’s not the case; all these bird pictures depict real species, interpreted through the minds and hearts of talented artists.

  1. I love birds as well. I always wonder what they’re thinking and if they ever appreciate being so free and able to just fly away from their troubles. I use to make origami cranes as a gift to those I admire. They’re wonderful gifts and they’re inexpensive.

  2. Another bird lover! I’ve often wondered what they’re thinking too. 🙂

  5. Hi,
    I make my own greeting cards and buy a lot of stickers and embellishments, I like your site but wonder if the images are far to large for use on my cardsm if downsized might lose their quality, I use around 2″ or 3″ or smaller embellishments not sure how to use those any suggestions…print on cardstock and cut out maybe.
    Thank you

  6. Hi Brenda. As for downsizing, depending on the image, the details should be clear down to a pretty small size. You’ll have to experiment with individual images to know that for sure though. As for how to use them, printing and cutting them is probably your best option.

    If you’ll be selling the cards you create with the images, please make sure to read our terms of use first.

    Thanks for your comment!
