This blog is dedicated to the greatest all-female team in the history of comics, DC's Birds of Prey! Since it first appeared as a relatively unofficial short story buried in a DC showcase, the team's propularity and roster has grown.
Led by information and computer specialist Oracle (Barbara Gordon, formerly Batgirl), the field team has boasted a number of agents, most notably Black Canary, Huntress, Lady Blackhawk, Manhunter, Misfit and Big Barda, among many others (with plenty of appearances from other heroes). As the team returns to the spotlight, let's focus on all the great times this series has given us!
Note: Submissions will be accepted freely, but as far as possible the appearance of the Birds in other comics separate from BOP activity (e.g., Black Canary in the Justice League) should be avoided. Pin-ups are, of course, allowed. This is a guideline rather than a rule, but it would be better to dedicate this blog to the actual Birds of Prey outfit.

Our favourite pilot, by far!
one of the most fun things about drawing lil gothams is getting to paint nerdy redheaded Babs
I for one miss nerdy redheaded Babs A LOT.
Dinah Laurel Lance, I adore you for that reference.
It was Walt Disney’s favorite song from Mary Poppins, he used to make the composers, the Sherman Brothers, come and play it, and he would cry every time.
Bruce Timm Birds of Prey
This has done the rounds before, but I’m always happy to post the Birds and Bruce Timm, so this needs to be re-shared :)
MegaCon 2013 - SaturdayA nice shot of our full Gotham group from Saturday.
2 Birds plus modified versions of two of Babs’ standard hanger-ons at the old Clock Tower.
They are the defenders of Gotham City, they are the Birds if Prey!.. Mom: why do you have dolls? Me: They’re action figures!!! #batgirl #huntress #blackcanary #birdsofprey #batman #dc #dcdirect #dccomics #actionfigurecollection
