Tom Poulsom is a gardener and tree surgeon who also has a passion for bird watching, but he also has an incredibly creative side to him to which is why he's turned his hobby into these amazing LEGO birds.
As you can imagine, it didn't take long before Poulsom had over 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas for these impressive bird replicas to start being mass produced by LEGO themselves. Three of the birds are set to be mass produced and should hit shelves by January 2015.
Poulsom told twobirdersandbinoculars “I have always been a fan of LEGO, and a big admirer of the natural world, rekindling my love for LEGO two years ago and building what most boys would build, cars, trucks and spaceships, etc. However, being a gardener and a lover of nature I wanted to build something related to my job. One day during a break from digging in a customers garden a Robin Red Breast landed on my fork handle. This was the eureka moment behind what is now the LEGO Bird Project.”
