Birdorable Bonanza 2012 Starts Tomorrow!

We're excited to announce that we'll be having another Birdorable Bonanza this summer - and this will be our biggest ever! From July 10th through the end of the month we will release a new Birdorable bird species on our blog and Facebook page every day, counting down to the 400th Birdorable. There will be lots of different birds from all around the world, from parrots to birds of prey. So get ready for three weeks of Birdorable fun! Every day we'll post a preview of the next day's bird for you to guess. Here we go: Preview: Tomorrow's first bonanza bird is an insect-eating songbird from the Americas that has a beautiful red chest. Can you guess what it will be?
