The Bird, also known by its design ID "2546 Animal Bird", is a minifigure animal which consists of only one piece and fits on only one stud. Bird minifigures have been produced in varied colors throughout the years to represent varied species of birds, including Parrots.

History Edit

Birds first appeared in 1989 with the introduction of the Pirates line. The set 6270 Forbidden Island and 6285 Black Seas Barracuda were the first to feature red coloured bird figures which were adorned with painted embellishments, to resemble parrots. The set 6274 Caribbean Clipper was the first to feature a solid non-painted bird coloured yellow. From 1990 and onward, solid coloured birds were made available in various colours in multiple sets including Castle, Pirates, Wild West, Adventurers Egypt, and Time Twisters themed sets. Since it's introduction in 1989 to 2002, painted parrot figures have been utilized in multiple sets within the Pirates, Paradisa, Divers, and Adventurers themes.

In 2007, with the reintroduction of the Pirates line, bird figures became produced with a blend of red and green plastic.

On the LEGO online shopping program called Pick A Brick, the Bird figure is available for individual purchase, only in light gray, for the price of $0.31 USD.
