Gloria Goldfinch
About this creation
Meet Gloria the Goldfinch. The fifth in my British Bird Series.

This is one of my least favourite of the series but I still like her.

European Gldfinches are a little more understated than their striking American relatives, with just a flash of yellow on their wings and a lovely red face :-)

I built a couple of props for Gloria, the first being a feeder. It didn't turn out quite how I envisaged it lol



The second is an attempt at a nest complete with some eggs.



Uh oh it looks like there's a bad egg in there!



Nest without eggs



Lets take a closer look at Gloria in all her glory.



Notice I used some different legs this time, I think they look pretty good.



She has to stay on her perch as she will not stand up on her bendy handcuff legs lol





One final shot of broody Gloria :-)



Hope you like her, she's not my best but I think she's pretty accurate.

What do you think of her?

I just love the colors in this one, another great bird. You have quite the bird collection now, it seems! And of course, your presentation is just perfect. Nice work! (sorry to be so far behind on commenting, I have been extremely busy the past few weeks!)

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 very cute! the feeder turned out good for me, naturally you get to see more of them than me, so you probably expect more, I like the nest too, very well done! but, is nt there a joker egg in there? lol! well done tom!
Thanks Frank! I think the suet feeder would have looked better if had used different colour plates round the outside but hey I'm never happy as I'm a perfectionist lol The Joker egg is the "Bad Egg" ;-)

Quoting Brody Allen All your bird creations are gorgeous! I am loving every one more then the last. My favorite bird right now is the California valley quail if you are taking request.
Hey Brody thanks for the kind words! I'll be honest I have so many birds I'd like to build that this will more than likely not be one of them, sorry about that. Judging from your Out of Comfort Zone entry I reckon you should give it a try I think you might surprise yourself ;-)

Quoting Netro X Epic! I have one question: How do you make those eggs stick together? I see this type of thing everywhere, is it just glue?
Thank you! I would never use glue on my Lego, they are held together using a 2 long technic axle http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=32062. Pretty straight forward really ;-)

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Nice! What's the white bit in the beak?
Thank you! It's a white four long bar which runs right the way through her head through two 1x1 modified bricks with four studs. I thought it helped to make the beak look a bit more pointy.

Far from the race-cars, you're developping impressive skills. You're improving the background and it's very rich!! The idea of the nest is cool, too. Beautiful job!!

I love that nest with the 'bad egg'! Your finches have red?! The ones we have here do not. I like your suet feeder too. Delightful as always! :)

This is great, aside from the bad egg. That bit is terrifying to no end. But anyway, I really dig that suet cage. Very clever!

Quoting Gale Winthrope Spectacular! I love the excellent use of the handcuffs and the nest. Now while I sit here watching a playful bright yellow goldfinch fly around my yard I think this is quite a nice recreation of the British goldfinch. Great job.
Thank you again Gale! I'd love to have the pleasure of seeing your native Goldfinches, I've only seen pictures.
