About this creation
Introducing Arny the American Robin the eleventh bird for my North American Series of the LEGO Bird Project on CUUSOO

The quintessential early bird, American Robins are common sights on lawns across North America, where you often see them tugging earthworms out of the ground. Robins are popular birds for their warm orange breast, cheery song, and early appearance at the end of winter. Though they’re familiar town and city birds, American Robins are at home in wilder areas, too, including mountain forests and Alaskan wilderness.

Size & Shape
American Robins are fairly large songbirds with a large, round body, long legs, and fairly long tail. Robins are the largest North American thrushes, and their profile offers a good chance to learn the basic shape of most thrushes. Robins make a good reference point for comparing the size and shape of other birds, too.

Color Pattern
American Robins are gray-brown birds with warm orange underparts and dark heads. In flight, a white patch on the lower belly and under the tail can be conspicuous. Compared with males, females have paler heads that contrast less with the gray back.

Behavior
American Robins are industrious and authoritarian birds that bound across lawns or stand erect, beak tilted upward, to survey their environs. When alighting they habitually flick their tails downward several times. In fall and winter they form large flocks and gather in trees to roost or eat berries.

Habitat
American Robins are common across the continent in gardens, parks, yards, golf courses, fields, pastures, tundra, as well as deciduous woodlands, pine forests, shrublands, and forests regenerating after fires or logging.

Nice idea to make it "in flight". The result is awesome! In my opinion, the belly is just fine, so is the head.

Is there no end to your incredible talents. This is a brilliant looking bird and in flight makes it so much more special. Thanks for the amazing back ground insight of this bird. I am still looking for the Lego publication of all these totally amazing birds of yours. Cheers.

I like how you made this bird in the "flying position" unlike most of your other birds. I hope you hit 10k soon. -LB Jr.

Honestly, I'm a tad confused on this one Tom. As a MOC, it is second to none, the wing technique, and over all design is nothing short of Genius! BUT.....As a Cusoo prospect, it seems to make sense to stick to "Legal" techniques, so the wings would be an issue here. Honestly, with how boring the MOC Olympics have made the pages lately, I am enjoying this bit of controversy! 5 stars from me regardless of the techniques, and say high to Joe, haven't talked to him in a coon's age.

A very characterful little robin. I like the technique that you've used to make the wings and how it conveys the idea of feathers.
