After reading an article on Thomas Poulsom’s Lego British Bird Series, I was inspired to create one of my favorite North American birds: the Cardinalis cardinalis or Northern Cardinal.

This male specimen is 7.5" (19cm). He is an all-red bird with a pointed crest, and a black patch at the base of his red bill.

I love the idea of connecting to the natural world with Lego. I strongly advocate for more hands on education. Imagine my creation in the classroom.

Thanks for your support. And please head on over to and support his lovely bird creations as well :)
