Horace the Hyacinth Macaw

Here's Horace the Hyacinth Macaw and his Friend Marky the Scarlet Macaw.


The Hyacinth Macaw is a parrot native to central and eastern South America. With a length of about 100 cm (3.3 ft) it is longer than any other species of parrot. It is the largest macaw and the largest flying parrot species, though the flightless Kakapo of New Zealand can outweigh it at up to 3.5 kg. The Kakapo is a bird I will be building soon :-)


Habitat loss and trapping wild birds for the pet trade has taken a heavy toll on their population in the wild, and as a result the species is classified as Endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List. Very sad :-(


Anyway enough facts I'll let Horace and Marky do the Squawking...


Say bye bye Horace and Marky.......




Hope you like them they look great together don't they?

I want to build a Blue and Yellow Macaw to go with them :-)


If you like Horace, Marky and the rest of my birds and would like to own your favourite/s one day please follow this link LEGO Bird Project And take a couple of minutes to register and support my idea.


Thank you!

    I wanted to vote you as a Lego favorite for the British Birds but I'm not on Facebook. Now I want to even more! Is there some way to vote for you that doesn't involve Facebook?

    These are fantastic. A friend of mine runs a small bird sanctuary and I would love to give her something like this as she just recently had her beloved Beloo, a hyacinth pass away. Would it be possible to have you send me the instructions so I could make one for her.
    My address is cmzurn@yahoo.com
    Fabulous work though

    love them all . my question is if you have made instructions for the creation of them I would be interested in getting them

    really! I think you could sell kits for these birds! My daughter just saw the movie "Rio" and asked me for "about 2000 feathers" because she wanted to make a costume. She also loves legos and making this bird might be a compromise. Wish you sold the kits!
