Get Your 2016 Limited Edition ABA Bird of the Year T-Shirt NOW!

We’re excited to announce that, once again, we’re offering limited edition Bird of the Year T-shirts, this time featuring the 2016 BOY Chestnut-collared Longspur!

Designed by Toronto-based graphic artist and ABA board member Paul Riss, and his partner Rachel Riorden of PRBY Apparel these t-shirts are only available through pre-order. If you missed the window for the 2014 or 2015 shirts, now is the time to make amends!

You have until September 15 to make your order! The shirts will then print and ship and be in your hands by October 15.

Once again, the shirt is distributed by the excellent and socially aware custom printing service, Fed By Threads. A small amount of the proceeds go to the ABA and another portion is donated to the Food Bank of Southern Arizona, so your purchase is helping two worthy organizations and getting a cool t-shirt besides. The shirts are made in the USA, with organic cotton with no pesticides or heavy metal dyes.

The t-shirts are super high quality and very comfortable, but just as a warning, they ran a little small last year (at least per my own size), so err on the side of the larger shirt if you are between sizes.

For the women’s shirts, we had so many issues with sizes running small that we just shifted a size. So the old L is now the new M. The old XL is now an L, and so on. We’re hoping the shirts will thus be more the size folks are expecting.Please note that this change is for women’s shirts only!

Check it out! Spread the word! We’d love to see as many people as possible wearing the Chestnut-collared Longspur this fall!
