T-Shirt Tuesday: Licensed Bird Bander

Posted on September 7th, 2010 in Banding, T-Shirt Tuesday

This week’s highlighted shirt was designed for bird banders. Licensed Bird Bander is done in the style of an official government seal, and reads “Federally Licensed Bird Bander.” The design is shown here on a Basic Sweatshirt. Dozens of other shirt styles are available here.

T-Shirt Tuesday: Singer With a Band

Posted on June 1st, 2010 in Banding, T-Shirt Tuesday

After the fun I had banding birds yesterday, I couldn’t resist posting a banding-themed t-shirt for this week’s highlighted design. An illustrated bird proclaims “I’m a Singer with a Band“. Experienced banders in our group yesterday said that Baltimore Orioles have sung while they were being examined. Have you ever had a bird sing in your hand?


T-Shirt Tuesday: 3x for bird banders

Posted on July 21st, 2009 in Banding, T-Shirt Tuesday

Last Saturday we went to a bird banding demonstration. In talking with the banders, we learned that we could observe their actual field work when they set up at Rollins Savanna today. Yippee! I’m really looking forward to it!

Bird banders attach small numbered and/or colored bands to birds as an aid to research. Bird banders are known as bird ringers in parts of Europe (I can never remember who calls them which term, they both sound natural to me). The highlighted shirts for this week have all been designed just for bird banders!

This design has a collegiate style. Property of Banding Dept is shown on a hoodie. Also available in Property of Ringing Dept.

This design, iRing, spoofs a popular iPod ad campaign. It has the silhouette of a songbird with a white ring around one leg. Also available in iBand.

This last shirt is the word Bander made of elements.

T-Shirt Tuesday: I’m With the Banders

Posted on November 4th, 2008 in Banding, T-Shirt Tuesday

This week I’d like to highlight a t-shirt designed for bird banders or bird ringers: I’m With the Banders.



This design spoofs the phrase I’m with the Band. This t-shirt for bird banders reads I’m with the Banders. The accompanying image is a set of needle nose pliers, one of the tools of the bird banding trade. Bird banding is a great aid to the study of birds. This is a cute gift idea for anyone that bands wild birds.

T-Shirt Tuesday: iBand

Posted on June 3rd, 2008 in Banding, T-Shirt Tuesday

This is the first of a planned weekly series: T-Shirt Tuesday, where I’ll highlight t-shirt designs from the Magnificent Frigatebird shop for birders and great birding t-shirts from other online shops.

This twist on a popular iPod ad series features the silhouette of a little songbird with a white leg ring, along with the text iBand. This fun design makes a great gift for any bird ringer or bird bander.



iBand is also available in green or orange. For bird ringers, we also offer a line of iRing apparel and gifts.
