Marky the Macaw
About this creation
Here's Marky the Scarlet Macaw an addition to my Tropical Bird Series.

It is native to humid evergreen forests in the American tropics. Range extends from extreme south-eastern Mexico to Amazonian Peru, Bolivia and Brazil in lowlands. It has suffered from local extinction through habitat destruction and capture for the parrot trade.

They live up to 50 years in captivity, although, a more typical lifespan is 30 to 40 years. They are unusually stubborn at times.

I saw some of these in the wild when I visited Brazil in 2000 and they are absolutely stunning birds that need to be saved!

Scarlet Macaws are famous for being a Pirates best friend :-)

He is one of my favourite birds I've built so far as I think he is pretty accurate to the real deal, apart from the size (he's about half the size of a real one).

Please help me to make these Birds become an official LEGO set by following the link to support the LEGO Bird Project over on CUUSOO



















Here's Marky and Captain Red Beard to give you an idea of the size :-)



I really hope you Marky Macaw as much as I do and please do take a couple of minutes to register and support The LEGO Bird Project over on CUUSOO

If you're already a supporter a massive THANK YOU!!!

Excellent job! The shaping is great, and in particular I like the tail. The eye is also made in an ingenious way.

Beautiful shaping! You never cease to amaze me with your ingenious techniques. I've always wanted to own a Macaw, but I got stuck with a fiery-tempered conure instead :P Terrific job, and I hope my support on CUUSOO will get you to the top!

This is one of your best! The proportions and coloration is spot one. I like this one because the body shape is different the most of the other birds so it really highlights your range as a builder.

I personally think this is your 2nd best, your robin being the best. I like how you made the tail. 30-40 years is old...especially for an animal! -LB Jr.
