I saw this on eBay.

Did you buy it? It's perfect. :o)

That looks like a more wholesome toy than this one. Though, I don't think I have seen a birder with a mustache like that.

Wow! That looks just like me when I wear my pith helmet and red birding ascot!

Will said...

A pith helmet is exactly what I need! With my love for birds and my passion for Classical Archaeology, I will look cool no matter if I'm spouting Sibley or Socrates.

As for the LEGO, I'm holding out for the Ivory Billed Woodpecker edition.

Never seen a birdwatcher toy!
Thanks for sharing.

Patrick,
This toy is awesome! And since Lego has now recognized birding it can only be a matter of time before it becomes "mainstream". :D
Actually I suspect that set will be given for birthdays, etc. to many kids...of ALL ages! ;)

Good luck to you & your team this weekend in the Birding Superbowl....hope our weather treats you right. I am leaving New England for FL tonight...enough of these frigid tempuratures!

What will they come up with next! If only they had LEGO Birdwatchers when I was a kid! LOL

I loved this so much that I included it in the latest WINGS newsletter--where the link has quickly become the most clicked-on in the history of our website.

Have a great time this weekend, Patrick. GO FOR THE GOLD--OR THE IVORY!!
