Aargh, Birders, It's Talk Like a Pirate Day!

International Talk Like a Pirate Day is a silly holiday that's been celebrated each September 19 since the mid 1990s. Take the time today to play along by adding pirate talk to your regular speech. Are you going birding? Here are some ideas to share out in the field.

  • Avast! There's a snake on the path, let's go around
  • Come here, me hearties, and look at the eagle nest through my scope.
  • I saw a lot of birds on New Year's Day; I added a lot of booty to my year list.
  • Did you bring extra doubloons to give to your carpool driver?
  • Let's sing a shanty to accompany our life bird joy.
  • I don't trust that scallywag, she's a stringer!
  • Shiver me timbers! Is that a Golden Eagle flying overhead?
  • I'm going to go around and try to flush the bird, savvy?

Get Ready for Fall Birding: Hoodies & Sweatshirts for Birders

Fall migration! What a great time to be out in the field. The weather's turning cooler, and birds are on the move. Local breeders are heading south, and birds that spend the summer further north are heading back down to their over-wintering spots. As the birds change, so might a birder's wardrobe. It's time to pull out layers and warmer gear like sweatshirts and hoodies. Get ready for fall birding with a fun new birdwatching-themed sweatshirt or hoodie. Here are some great examples.

White-throated Sparrow Embroidered Hoodie

Found on Zazzle

Keep warm while you're out birding with this comfortable black outer garment. The hoodie has an embroidered White-throated Sparrow at the chest "pocket" area. Embroidered text under the bird reads "TRIP LEADER", making this a perfect sweatshirt to wear when you're out leading a birding group. The text is fully customizable so you can change it to read your name, the name of your birding club, or anything else!

Barred Owl Photograph Pop Art Sweatshirt

Found on Zazzle

A single image of a Barred Owl face is featured in four black and white blocks. Half of the blocks use inverted tones to make this an artistic look at the iconic and charismatic forest owl. The monochrome photo manipulation art looks great on a grey sweatshirt as featured here. This one is great for birders who love owls (that's probably 99% of birders, I think).

Beast of Birding Unisex Navy Blue Sweatshirt

Found on Zazzle

Maybe not all birders can pull this off, but any birder who really loves the hobby should have no qualms about wearing this Beast of Birding sweatshirt. The phrase is a take on "Beast of Burden". Bold text in shades of blue makes the design look like a logo. Get ready for cooler weather birding and pick up this fun and funny birder sweatshirt.

Birding Addict Funny Birdwatcher Hoodie

Found on Zazzle

Distressed text in a collegiate style reads simply BIRDING ADDICT. Let other on your field trip know you're the real deal. This bold text design looks great on a white hoodie as shown here. Stay warm and cozy as you fulfill your own personal fanaticism: birding addict!
