See our mural's winning warbler inside...
The Prothonotary Warbler was voted as the winning warbler to be featured in the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's centennial mural.

We're Thankful for Birds—and for Your Support

Here at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, we’re thankful for you and for all those around the world who love birds and support conservation.

Thanks to you, we were able to do more than ever this year to help birds—by sharing the wonder and science of birds with more people; analyzing more data from the growing ranks of citizen-science participants; and producing more information to aid decision makers, land managers, industries, and conservationists to protect birds and their habitats.

Our featured bird for this year’s Thanksgiving eCard is the Prothonotary Warbler, the winning warbler in more than 32,000 rounds of voting on our website last week. As a result, artist Jane Kim will feature the Prothonotary Warbler in the mural she is painting at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to celebrate the diversity of birds for the Lab’s centennial in 2015.

To you, and to our extended family of people around the world who love birds—best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving from the staff at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
