Lonnie the Long-Tailed Manakin
About this creation
Meet Lonnie the Long-Tailed Manakin a new addition to my LEGO Bird Project on CUUSOO.

The Long-tailed Manakin (Chiroxiphia linearis) is a species of bird in the Pipridae family. It is found in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, and heavily degraded former forest.

The manakin species are very interesting in their family life. Long-tailed Manakin males form a long-term partnership duo or trio. Together they sing in synchrony and, for any female who is attracted by their singing, perform a complex coordinated courtship dance. If she mates, only the alpha male inseminates her. Among many displaying male partnerships in a locality (a dispersed lek), only one or a very few males may account for the vast majority of matings in a given breeding season. As in other lekking species, the female then builds the nest and raises the young without involvement by males.





































If you like Lonnie and the rest of my birds and would like to own your favourite/s one day please follow this link LEGO Bird Project And take a couple of minutes to register and support my idea.

I'm not sure how I missed this. ;-) This is very good - in some ways very different from your other birds (this one is all smooth where as your others had studs) but it's still awesome. I can't wait to buy these from a LEGO store. -LB Jr.

Nice! Great work on the tail, and the body's awesome too. Best of luck to reach 10000, I'm sure it's just a matter of time.
