If you know a bird-watcher or a nature-lover, we’re pretty sure they’ll be coo-coo for UPG’s Birds on a Wire mug. It’s for the early bird who enjoys a dawn chorus or the night owl who’s up late with the whip-poor-wills and herons.   

When the mug is cool, it’s encircled with the elegant silhouettes of birds on a wire. Pour in a hot beverage and watch as 18 bird species show their true colors:   

  • American Goldfinch
  • American Kestrel
  • American Robin
  • Barn Swallow 
  • Carmine Bee-Eater 
  • Eastern Towhee 
  • Green Catbird
  • Indigo Bunting 
  • King Parrot
  • Northern Mockingbird
  • Purple Finch 
  • Red and Yellow Barbet
  • Red Whiskered Bulbul 
  • Scissortail Flycatcher  
  • Tree Swallow
  • Vermillion Flycatcher 
  • Whiskered Treeswift 
  • White-throated Sparrow 

“…I never for a day gave up listening to the songs of our birds, or watching their peculiar habits, or delineating them in the best way that I could…”

– John James Audubon   

Our Birds on a Wire mug brings everyday beauty to a tiny, dark apartment and it’s perfect for wading through dewy grass in your backyard while you sip coffee at sunrise and mutter about how nobody else is up and the day’s half-over. (Looking at you, Pop.)
