How cool is that???


If you read my post "Unexpected Pelagic Birding" a few days ago, then you know what this post is about.

I made a comment on that post about an idea I got from the birds that day that could make a cool Birdorable t-shirt for my non-Peruvian fiancee: "I love Peruvian Boobies" just seemed perfect!

Guess what, I just got a mail from Amy @ Birdorable saying: "Your wish is our command and we have added the Peruvian Booby to Birdorable. We've even added a couple of Boobies designs, too! Let me know what you think of them. :o)"

OMG, are you kidding me??? I clicked on the link she sent and found this. How cool is that???


I have to say that they made a great job. Here is a picture of some of these birds (adults and juveniles) at Ballestas Islands (Paracas, Peru) that Tommy took in January 2007.


Now I have lots of alternatives to choose from, feel free to suggest any!

Enthusiasts of the films of Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski (Blind Chance, Dekalog, The Double Life of Véronique, Three Colours Trilogy, etc) are invited to drop by my chatroom at the Brasserie Alizé on the anniversary of the director’s death, this coming Friday evening, 13 March 2009, from around 1800 GMT. Please pass on the invitation to others and hopefully see you there!
