About this creation
Here is an addition to the British collection of birds I've built so far.

Nina the Northern Lapwing.

Also known as the peewit in imitation of its display calls, its proper name describes its wavering flight. Its black and white appearance and round-winged shape in flight make it distinctive, even without its splendid crest. This familiar farmland bird has suffered significant declines recently and is now a Red List species.

Lapwings are found on farmland throughout the UK particularly in lowland areas of northern England, the Borders and eastern Scotland. In the breeding season prefer spring sown cereals, root crops, permanent unimproved pasture, meadows and fallow fields. They can also be found on wetlands with short vegetation. In winter they flock on pasture and ploughed fields.

Thanks for all your support so far guys and gals! There are many more birds to come! I've built over 50 now and they all still survive :-)

Beautiful as always! Love those colors! And now that you have done pink/red for legs/feet... I am still waiting for you to build a bluefootedbooby! (You may have to wait for this comment... a perfectly innocent word was moderated on the first comment, that's why I left out the spacing!) :)

Yours was one of the first mocs I commented on today... always a faithful follower of your work. But my first is stillll in purgatory because I happened to make the suggestion to you again about you building a certain blue-footed bird from So. America(i think!) I love the feet/leg colors in this one too! :)

I just love your birds. If I am not mistaken, you designed the limited edition toucans set for the BrickFair Alabama 2013 convention? It is sitting here on my desk and I love it. Because the theme of the event was birds, I looked at some of your's and tried to build the Alabama state bird, the Yellowhammer with such miserable results that I could not put it on the perch of one of my functional birdhouses I build from my vintage junk/reject bin bricks.

I wanted to see a Killdeer, but this still looks very good like the rest of your birds.
