When I was a young boy—and admittedly, still to this day—I loved playing with LEGO. Their shapes and colors opened a world of possibilities. While many people lose their love of building, one man continues to use his imagination and skills to make amazing realistic bird creations out of the colored blocks.
We wrote about Thomas Poulsom last year when his creations first appeared on the LEGO crowdsourcing site that looks for new ideas to make commercial. However, in his first series of birds, he made species found only in the UK. He’s now expanded to several North American birds.
He currently sits at around 6,130 votes on the site, but he needs to get to 10,000 in order for LEGO to take his creations into consideration to sell them commercially. So if you’d like to see these in stores, go to his page to vote and see more.
In the meantime, check out his 15 North American LEGO birds. (All photos by Thomas Poulsom)
