Charity postage stamps

Want to see Cerulean Warblers and Ivory-billed Woodpeckers fly out of your hands? Put 'em on your snail-mail envelopes!

American Bird Conservancy now offers the first U.S. postage stamps to benefit bird conservation. The 39-cent stamps are available through the ABC website.

The nonprofit ABC is considered a top-rated charity by Charity Navigator, and more than 25 percent of the net proceeds will go to ABC's conservation programs.

The stamps spread the word about restoring American songbird populations and halting species extinction. Graphic designer Gemma Radko used a photograph by bird bander Robert Mulvihill to create the warbler stamp, while artist Todd Telander painted the woodpecker stamp.
