Barney the Barn Owl: Lego

Barney the Owl is one of the birds from Thomas Poulsom aka DeTomaso's Lego Bird Project. 

Why birds?
"I find birds a great subject to build with LEGO (being a gardener and bird lover, I can't believe I didn't think of it sooner) I also think that if these birds were turned into official sets they would be inspirational to both children and adults." 


His use of color and perfect selection of lego blocks bring these birds to life. You can see more of his amazing lego birds here.
