Scotty the Scarlet Tanager

Here's Scotty the Scarlet Tanager an addition to the new North American Bird Series on CUUSOO.


The Scarlet Tanager (Piranga olivacea) is a medium-sized American songbird. Formerly placed in the tanager family (Thraupidae), it and other members of its genus are now classified in the cardinal family (Cardinalidae). The species' plumage and vocalizations are similar to other members of the cardinal family.


I tried to design Scotty with a different posture to my other birds, I wanted to make him look as if he was just about to spread his wings and fly off a branch. I might make him some wings in the future.


I hope you like him! I've built a very famous cousin of his too :-) Will post him soon!


Please support the LEGO Bird Project on CUUSOO. If you haven't already, I've now reached over 3,000 supporters but there's still a very long way to go!


Thanks to all that have supported so far!!!
