Small Site Spruce-Up

The MagnificentFrigatebird.com homepage has been updated a bit. There's more emphasis on my birding gift shop and less on the merchandise affiliated via Amazon.com (the binoculars, books, birdfeeders, etc).

The gifts main page has also been updated with a few new categories: Back Yard Birdwatching, Local Birder, Traveling Birder, and For the Birdmobile. All of the products in the gift shop are all made to order using print-on-demand technology - meaning the products are produced when the order is placed. Most products are fulfilled by CafePress but I'm expanding my offerings using a new provider, Zazzle, so you'll see a different product range available depending on the design you're looking at.

I'd love to hear what you think about the updates made to MagnificentFrigatebird.com!
