    T-Shirt Tuesday: Bird Freak

    Posted on June 30th, 2009 in T-Shirt Tuesday

    This week’s highlighted t-shirt for birders is a simple text design that reads Bird Freak. This t-shirt says it all if you’re serious about birds. Shown here on the Baseball Jersey.

    T-Shirt Tuesday: Stylized Bird Illustrations (2)

    Posted on June 23rd, 2009 in T-Shirt Tuesday

    We have a collection of Stylized Bird Illustration designs. This week I’d like to highlight another group of three from the series: Stylized Owl; Stylized Swan; and Stylized Wren. Each bird is drawn in simple black or white outlines. These are original, artistic bird designs that look especially fine on the colored shirts shown below.

    T-Shirt Tuesday: Lucky Birding Shirt

    Posted on June 16th, 2009 in T-Shirt Tuesday

    We’re still here in Florida, trying to see Endeavour’s liftoff which is scheduled for early Wednesday morning if all goes well. Since the launch was scrubbed last week we’ve had some time to bum around and do a little birding. I think we’re up to 9 lifers on the trip so far – not too shabby. The shuttle’s bad luck has been good birding luck for us. If you need some good luck on your next birdwatching excursion, this Lucky Birding Shirt might be just what you need. Each letter I in this design is dotted with a little bird silhouette, to add to your birding mojo. Available in a variety of colors. Shown here on the Green T-Shirt.

    My favorites are these called Birdwatchers.

    T-Shirt Tuesday: Elements of Birding

    Posted on June 2nd, 2009 in T-Shirt Tuesday

    This week’s highlighted bird-themed shirt is The Elements of Birding. The design is the word Birds made up using elements from the periodic table. This is a cute gift idea for anyone that loves birds, especially if they are also into chemistry.
