Boo! Birdorable wishes everyone a fa-boo-lous, wand-erful and t-eerie-fic Halloween! Enjoy this spooktacular weekend and try to not eat too much candy!
Back in June we introduced the Birdorable Tree Sparrow. The Eurasian Tree Sparrow is a small passerine bird related the the House Sparrow. Tree Sparrows live across much of Europe and Asia, although numbers are declining in some parts of western Europe.
Tree Sparrows are unfortunately on the decline in the United Kingdom - up to 50% in some areas. Research is being done to determine the cause of the decline as well as track current successful sparrow habitat and breeding grounds. Sightings of Tree Sparrows can be submitted to researchers online at TreeSparrows.com. The website's newsletter provides updated information on the research project and national sightings. Swag to show your support is also available.
This week's featured t-shirt is our brand-new embroidered Birdorable Cardinal on this Ladies Polo Shirt. We're proud to announce our first Birdorable bird presented in beautiful embroidery! The stitched Northern Cardinal is also available on jackets & hats. You can even customize the design and add your own embroidered text! How cool is that?
Here are two new Birdorable coloring pages for some cute coloring fun. This time it's the turn of our Birdorable Rock Pigeon and American Robin. Go to Coloring Pages to download these two new PDFs and check the Meet the Birds page to check the colors.
