Todays Funky Art Favorite: Black-capped Chickadee

Today’s BeerColors™ funky art favorite is the black-capped chickadee.

The playful chickadee is the state bird of Maine and Massachusetts and the provincial bird of New Brunswick, Canada. My Little Chickadee was a popular 1940 movie starring Mae West and W.C. Fields which may have served to endear the cute chickadee to the general public.

Our BeerColors™ Black-capped Chickadee (shown above) was painted with a Widmer Brothers Drifter Pale Ale from Widmer Brothers Brewing Co. in Portland, Oregon. You can buy our Black-capped Chickadee by going to our Shop Our Art section, clicking on the Endangered Species category, then on the Black-capped Chickadee image then following the prompts through checkout. Enjoy!

Today is Birding Day!

34 Blk Capped Chicadee web1000According to Days of the Year (www.daysoftheyear.com), today is Go Birding Day. To paraphrase their website blog, many of our best-loved species, such as the common house-sparrow are currently under threat, so Go Birding Day is also a chance to draw attention to the plight of some of our best-loved species.

You can celebrate Go Birding Day on your own, or with family and friends. Suggested birding activities, besides going birding with a local bird group (such as with the Audubon Society, www.audubon.org) include:
◾Hanging up bird feeders, and learning about the different sorts of food loved by various birds.
◾Taking photos of birds that you can see in your garden – or local area if you don’t have a garden.
◾Visiting a local nature reserve.

The cute little black-capped Chickadee (shown above) was painted with a great tasting Widmer Brothers Drifter Pale Ale from Widmer Brothers Brewing Co. in Portland, Oregon. It is available in three sizes and can be found under the Playful Birds section of the Shop Our Art drop down menu. As always, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of all BeerColors™ products go towards protecting our wildlife, pets and elderly.

Today is Bird Day!!

34 Blk Capped Chicadee web1000Today is International Bird Day! Not only did birds tweet before humans began doing so, birds are vital environmental indicators.

There are several highly responsible groups working tirelessly to protect our birds. One of the charities BeerColors™ supports is Bird Life International (www.birdlife.org) which is a global alliance of bird conservation groups from over 100 territories and countries seeking to prevent extinction of bird species by focusing on bird habitats.

The black-capped chickadee pictured above urges you to “tweet” your support  for bird and wildlife preservation. This chickadee was painted with a great tasting Widmer Brothers Drifter Pale Ale and can be found under Playful Bird Prints in the drop down menu under Shop Our Art.
