Awesome Birder Earrings

I saw this display of earrings at the Merritt Island NWR visitor center and fell in love. They are designed and produced by a small company called Jabebo.

In each pair of earrings, two different images complement each other. I enlarged a few of them below so you can see what I mean. My pictures don't really do these intricate designs justice; you can see them all (including other science-themed sets besides birds) at the Jabebo website. My favorites are the American Robin & nest, Mockingbird (seen below), Osprey (seen below), Saw-whet Owl, and the Northern Flicker (yellow-shafted). I would love to see a Barred Owl in their offering!

The earrings are minature images pressed onto a double layer of post-consumer cereal box cardboard. The display cards are made of the same material. You can read more about the process on the Jabebo website.

The earrings are mostly sold at nature centers and wildlife preserves; you can find out where to buy them in your area here.

T-Shirt Tuesday: Lucky Birding Shirt

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...

T-Shirt Tuesday: Extreme Birder

This week's highlighted shirt is Extreme Birder. A simple text design using a font that looks like it's on the move. This is perfect for birders who are always on the go (or on the edge)! The design is shown here with red text on a women's classic t-shirt in black.

T-Shirt Tuesday: Bird Freak

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. The text is a grunge style with some elements of distressed for a more vintage look. Bird Freak is shown here on a Baseball Jersey.
