This week we are proud to highlight four new t-shirt designs created to help Gulf Coast wildlife. All of Birdorable's profits on all sales of these four designs from creation until the end of 2011 were donated to organizations working to help Gulf Coast birds suffering from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster. All of the designs feature our revamped Birdorable Brown Pelican.

Brown Pelicans are a symbol of survival, having just been removed from the federal endangered species list in November 2009. The species faces a new threat with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster now soiling the Gulf Coast shores of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

100% of Birdorable's profit for all purchases of these designs was donated to wildlife rescue and research organizations working on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster. Click any t-shirt pictured here to see other products with the same design.

Earlier this month the American Ornithologists' Union had their annual meeting in Philadelphia. During the event, the 4th annual student quiz bowl took place, and Birdorable was proud to donate three of our Great Auk tote bags to be used as prizes. The Great Auk is part of the logo of the AOU and their quarterly journal is The Auk. According to AOU Student Affairs Committee member Nicholas Block, "The quiz bowl went really well overall! We had hundreds of people in attendance, and a great time was had by all. The team of students from Auburn University, named A Flock of Steven Seagals, won the title." Here are two of the winning team members showing off their Birdorable Great Auk totes.
Thanks for the update, Nick! It sounds like the quiz bowl was a lot of fun!
The first Peregrine Falcon chicks have hatched over at the Rochester Falconcam! Parents Mariah and Kaver are going to be busy during the next weeks feeding their chicks, which will be full-grown falcons in just six weeks. Head on over to the Falconcam's blog, Imprints, to see the first photos of the eyases. (Remember, Birdorable supports the Falconcam with 30% of the sales from our Mariah & Kaver section going to the Genesee Valley Audubon Society)
