Tom Poulsom, a gardener and tree surgeon from Bristol, turned his passion for birding into these amazing LEGO brick bird replicas.
Poulsom’s designs didn’t go unappreciated – 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas voted to start mass-producing 3 of his birds, and the first kit hits stores in January.
“I have always been a fan of LEGO, and a big admirer of the natural world, rekindling my love for LEGO two years ago and building what most boys would build, cars, trucks and spaceships, etc. However, being a gardener and a lover of nature I wanted to build something related to my job. One day during a break from digging in a customers garden a Robin Red Breast landed on my fork handle. This was the eureka moment behind what is now the LEGO Bird Project,” Poulsom told twobirdersandbinoculars.
The first three birds to be released:
Bobby Robin helps out in the garden
Leeto and Latifah the LoveBirds
Victor The Violet-eared Hummingbird
Stormy the Snowy Owl
Tommy the Turkey
