April 17, 1951: The bird's a solo act

No thought balloons yet, but Snoopy's dealings with a decidedly non-Woodstock bird are looking more human.  Something to notice: when Snoopy's head is facing the "camera" in three-quarters perspective, his eyes are a little closer together than in previous strips. Earlier he looked almost fish-eyed, but they've begun to migrate to the front.  Over time, all the characters' eyes would move closer together, which helped to give them a more mature appearance as the situations became more complex.
