Balancing Bird

This model is my attempt to build one of my childhood toys out of LEGO bricks - bird balancing on its beak. I remembered its main principle - placing center of gravity to beak but the rest was question of trial and error. In the end I found out that distance between tip of beak and center of gravity is as important as perfect symmetry of model. It means that wings with counterweight must be low enough. Finished model is also supplemented with stand with some greenery.
