With Birdlife International and Angry Birds

Like everyone else, you probably have played Angry Birds on your iPhone, iPad, Android or recently on Chrome web-browser. It is the fad of the decade.  Now Angry Birds are really Angry when they support BirdLife International in special online Chrome version of the game, where there is information about the 189 angriest birds on the planet, those critically threatened by extinction. It is possible to donate to Birdlife directly from the page. Here is an excerpt from the Birdlife press release from yesterday.
