Step 10: Use the initial circle as a guide to draw the rest of the white-crowned sparrow's head. Draw a series of short strokes along the basic edge of the circle to create the feathery shape of the bird's head. Draw the strokes a bit higher than the edge of the circle so that the head is a bit taller. Continue to draw the strokes on the bottom along the edges of the guides for the neck.
Step 11: Draw a line that's made up of short strokes close to the top edge of the head for the markings on the head. Keep the strokes close to the top edge of the head. Follow the curvature of the sparrow's head as you draw the line. Add another line that's made up of short strokes below to create a thick stripe above the eye. Draw a squiggly line from the right of the eye to the edge of the head for another stripe. Add a squiggly line below the make the stripe thicker. The right side of this stripe should be thicker than the left side. Add a few more strokes along the bottom of the white-crowned sparrow's head for extra detail on the feathers.
Step 12: Under the initial circle for the head, draw a few short strokes for the top part of the white-crowned sparrow's folded wing. Below that, draw a series of long, curved lines toward the lower, right side for the bottom edge of the folded wing. Draw these long, curved lines across the middle of the body and into the base of the tail. Add some lines at the top for more of the wing. Draw a series of short, curved lines across the middle for feathers.
Step 13: Draw a series of short, curved lines below the middle section of the white-crowned sparrow's wing for more detail on the feathers. The feathers on the left should be narrower. The shapes don't have to be perfect. Just add some lines for detail. At the bottom, draw longer lines that are spaced closer together for more detail on the bird's feathers.
Step 14: Draw the shape of the leg and foot around the guides under the bird's body, on the right. Keep the shape of the leg thin. Add short strokes at the top for a feathery base. Draw the shape of the long, middle toe around the line on the left. Make the tip curved and pointy for the nail. Add a small, thin shape at the bottom for a smaller toe. Draw the backward-facing toe around the guide on the right. Make the tip pointy for the nail. Above the middle toe, draw a couple of lines for the short toe on the other side.
