Scotty the Scarlet Tanager
About this creation
Here's Scotty the Scarlet Tanager an addition to the new North American Bird Series on CUUSOO.

The Scarlet Tanager (Piranga olivacea) is a medium-sized American songbird. Formerly placed in the tanager family (Thraupidae), it and other members of its genus are now classified in the cardinal family (Cardinalidae). The species' plumage and vocalizations are similar to other members of the cardinal family.

I tried to design Scotty with a different posture to my other birds, I wanted to make him look as if he was just about to spread his wings and fly off a branch. I might make him some wings in the future.



























I hope you like him! I've built a very famous cousin of his too :-) Will post him soon!

Please support the LEGO Bird Project on CUUSOO. If you haven't already, I've now reached over 3,000 supporters but there's still a very long way to go!

Thanks to all that have supported so far!!!

Hi DeTomaso, I've been following your awesome birds! I like this one and actually started builing it from the pictures. I got far, but I am so curious how the back and tail look? Could you post pictures of that too? Because I lack red cheese slopes (only had enough for its belly) so my version is cheese-less (except its head, neck and shoulders) and I think that works very good too.

Quoting StoveTop Creator You always delight us with a new building technique for birdie feet! :)
Thanks STC! They are always the part I build last as I really dread it. It's really hard to recreate their legs and feet the way I would like to. They're either too fat, too long or too short or too straight. Oh well it's a challenge and I like those!

Quoting Lego Builders Great work! I absolutely love this one, deTOMaso. ;-) I really like the shaping on the lower section - it looks so smooth! I think this is one of your best small birds (I mean, not including your owls) so far, but I still like Bobby and Babby Robin more. ;-) Haha my dad used to think your name is Tom-demaso. Maybe you should change your name haha. 5/5 -LB Jr.
Haha Tom Demaso, I like it but I don't think I'll change it! DeTomaso Pantera is what my grandad used to call me so I have that name to honour him ;-) Glad you like Scotty :-)
