About this creation
Introducing Gary the Great-Tailed Grackle My tenth bird for my North American Series of the LEGO Bird Project on CUUSOO

A big, brash blackbird, the male Great-tailed Grackle shimmers in iridescent black and purple, and trails a tail that will make you look twice. The rich brown females are about half the male’s size. Flocks of these long-legged, social birds strut and hop on suburban lawns, golf courses, fields, and marshes in Texas, the Southwest, and southern Great Plains. In the evening, raucous flocks pack neighborhood trees, filling the sky with their amazing (some might say ear-splitting) voices.

If you would like to know more about this bird look here Great-Tailed Grackle

The colours are not quite right but unfortunately LEGO do not produce iridescent bricks lol





















What do you think of Gary?

If you like him please register and support The LEGO Bird Project on CUUSOO I still need over 6,000 supporters to reach my 10,000 goal so please help me to spread the "Bird"

Thanks for stopping by and a big thank you to those who have taken the time to support my project already :-)

Bird-tastic. Nice coloring, too. Reminds me of the 90's with the whole vivid-colors-on-black scheme.
