The Red-cockaded Woodpecker is a beautiful bird, with its black and white striped back, black cap and nape and large white cheek patches. Unfortunately, it is an endangered species and the 5,000 groups of RCWs still left, or 12,500 birds from Florida to Virginia and west to southeast Oklahoma and eastern Texas, represent only about 1% of the woodpecker's original population.

Albatrosses are among the most endangered bird species. 100,000 albatrosses are killed every year on fishing hooks. They are being killed in such vast numbers that they can't breed fast enough to keep up. This is putting them in real danger of extinction. From each Birdorable Albatross 'Save the Albatross' product sold, we will donate 30% of the retail price to the BirdLife International's Save the Albatross campaign. Birdorable features five different Albatross designs, each available on a many different products:
The Redhead is a medium-sized duck that lives in western North America. They eat plants, insects and small fish and feed by dabbling or diving. Mallards have a much larger range and live across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. They feed primarily on plants by dabbling. This new design asks the eternal question: Are Redheads Better? Than Mallards, that is... Cute gifts here for birdwatchers, duck fans and bird lovers.

The Northern Lapwing, a bird in the plover family, is common across temperate Europe and Asia and an occasional vagrant to North America. It is migratory over most of its extensive range, wintering in the south as far as north Africa, northern India and China.
The name lapwing comes from the 'lapping' sound that its wings make, or the flapping flight. This is a vocal bird in the breeding season, with constant calling as the crazed tumbling display flight is performed by the male.
