I love owls and it's no secret: my username is a dead giveaway; that's why I simply could not resist making a Lego Owl. I was so pleased with the results that I decided to make instructions. He has full wing flapping capabilities and looks unbelievably adorable. He has many uses: he can be the center piece for your table; you could make him into an ornament if change up the back and put a hook there; whatever you do with him, if you build him, is up to you. The possibilities are endless, so get building.
To all who are interested in building:
If anyone could make this little guy in black and take a neat looking picture, it would really make my day; I will be more than happy to give a patch to anyone who can do this for me. If you build him in any color, though, I'd be happy. If you can, take a picture, and I will add him or her to the step here.
Thanks for stumbling onto my instructable.
