When I first built my Lego Lazuli Bunting, due to source material I built it in a different posture than my other birds. This meant I had to attach the tail at a ~45-degree angle in order for the bird to be able to stand and not fall on its face. The problem is, that didn’t look natural at all, and what’s more, the bird just looked kinda depressed, so I was never satisfied with it. So today, I rebuilt the tail to face straight down, and it completely transformed the bird. I think it looks 1000% better this way, but it needs something to perch on in order to look natural. So that’s what I spent my morning building, and here is the result :)

Also, the pottery turtle and bear are pieces of Native American art I bought from a Navajo woman who was selling her work by the side of the road, and I think they’re some of the most beautiful decorations I have. When I put my bird on the shelf, I thought they just complimented each other really nicely for whatever reason, so I left them in the photos.
