Birdorable 200: Dodo

Cute Birdorable Dodo

We present you the 200th Birdorable bird: the Dodo. We often get requests for new birds to make and the Dodo has been one of the most requested ones. The Dodo was a large flightless bird in the Columbidae family, related to pigeons and doves. It was found on the island of Mauritius and has been extinct since the mid-to-late 17th century. It is something of an icon of extinction as it occurred in modern times. Our Birdorable Dodo is based on reconstructions of the bird that can be found in museums around the world. We usually show a real photo of the bird here, but with this extinct bird we could find only drawings like this one:

Hahah the vintage drawing is hilarious and adorable. An extinct birdorable is a really cool choice for bird 200!! Any chance you'll do a passenger pigeon sometime?
