Eskimo Curlew T-Shirt

In recognition of the plight of migrating shorebirds, I've created a new T-Shirt. The simple design is of an Eskimo Curlew based on the early 20th century woodcut by Edward Howe Forbush. Many of the western hemisphere's species of shorebirds are under increasing pressure from human activities, most notably, the Red Knot. The Eskimo Curlew was once the most abundant species in North America, but is now considered by many experts to be extinct. This is a cautionary tale and urgent reminder that we cannot delay actions to save remaining species.

The Eskimo Curlew T-Shirt is available in yellow here, 9 colors here and an organic cotton shirt in olive or pacific (pictured below) here. The City Birder Shop main page is here.
