Magnus Magpie
About this creation
Meet Magnus the Magpie, the seventh and last addition to my British Bird Series. I have started a new series of birds so the British series is on hold (for now).

Magnus was great fun to build and I'm happy with the way he turned out. I have copied a Magpies character as best as I could with LEGO.

I'll let you judge for yourselves.



As with most of my other birds, Magnus manages to balance on his own two feet.

I managed to give Magnus an opening beak and think it looks pretty good :-v







Magnus is a cheeky bird, when I wasn't looking he managed to raid my minifig accessories and steel a nice shiny sword.







I hope you like him. I found this website that has some interesting points about the history of the Magpie superstition "Good Morning Mr. Magpie, How's your wife today"?

I have build four new birds for a secret new series. All will be revealed soon, I am waiting until I have completed the whole series until I post them here and I'm hoping they'll have the same effect as the British Bird Series.

If you like these birds and would like to have one of your own please take a couple of minutes to support The CUUSOO LEGO Bird Project

To all of you that have supported so far, thank you very much but there is still a long way to go so please help me to spread the bird.

your bird is cool, knowing what you have as connection to them is poetic, and touches the romantic man in me, the problem is me...I feel so sad about the animals, it actually puts me down checking yours, I have been gone a long time, and can t remember the good it s doing to post or vote them, I ll check your debuts to feel better, I have just submitted lego a theme concept for the future, each animal sold in plastic, would benefit money for it s real counterpart, I wonder what they will answer, I ve been thinking about saving animals for a long time, I hope it helps, I know you do that for the same reasons, so, I m touched by your action, great inspiration tom!

Well done! On Wednesday, my class was watching BTN (Behind The News), and on the home page, it had one of your birds! So well done, and congrats on this success Thomas!

A magpie climbed into my car once while the window was open. This looks just like the one I saw. 5/5!

If i might do one , it'll probably be an African Hoopoe ! It was amazing to see one ! Actually i saw two ! One in Egypt (he opened his crown and then flew away with his black and white wings ...)and another one in Bostwana ! But i'm still thinking about . Got a few things i might want to do also .

They're cool builds, but they are becoming redundant, All the luck on Cuuso, but I enjoyed your Moc's more when you were diversified. Chris

The thought of going pro has a way of stripping a builder of what made him good in the first place. Like I said good luck with cuuso, can't wait for some new creative stuff. Chris

Oh wow, Tom! That is superb! It's faultless as far as I can see! The curves are really nice - I like the old school feel that it has! I really hope this becomes a set. I'm trying to spread the word about your cute little birdies. ;-) -LB Jr.

Quoting Deus the architect I hope you will get enough pieces for that ! I'd really love to see that ! :) I am thinking of making a bird myself ! Like a tribute to you because you inspired me so much ! What do you think about it ?
I'd love to see a bird from you Deus! Maybe you could build the crow as you mentioned it earlier and you know I'm not planning on building one. I do have plans for an American Bird series as I've had so many requests and there are some absolute stunners (especially the Blue Jay, Steller's Jay and the Scarlet Tanager to name just a few)!

Haha don't you worry, nothing will curb my creativeness. Besides I think these birds are creative and are definately a new challenge I am enjoying. But I will not forget my roots ;-)

Quoting Deus the architect It's lovely that we got the same birds flying around but in a diferent country ! I really love these ! But i do think you need the make open wings like some others you have made . Try that ! it'll look amazing ! Next up : a black crow perhaps ?
Thanks Deus! I really wanted to give Magnus wings but unfortunately I don't have enough 1x plate to do so. I think the Magpies wings are stunning. Maybe one day I can give him an upgrade :-) I'm affraid a crow will not be on the list. I think the Magpie is about as monochrome as I will go with my bird builds. Get ready for a technicolour treat :-)

I don't see how they are becoming redundant? The more birds I build the more exposure and support I will receive. Don't worry I will get back to building cars soon but my focus is on the birds until I gain 10,000 supporters ;-P

Quoting David Alexander Smith Beautiful. I was at Bird Land in Bourton on the Water today with my children, and was thinking of your Mocs. If Bristol Zoo won't display them, you should try them. (http://www.birdland.co.uk/)
Ooh what a good idea I've been to Bourton several times before I absolutely love the Cotswolds! I was contacted by BBC Springwatch today and there's a good chance they will feature the birds on their "Unsprung" programme. I am expecting a phonecall tomorrow to confirm so fingers crossed!
