Fifty Plus (50+) - Little birdies?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
This is a wise bunch so I'm sure someone will know the answer to the question: What are the little birdies I see next to some user names? What I really mean is, what do they signify?

They're Igors, a symbol to mark a donation to one of many charities in memory of Sheldon. see the string "one star,two stars,red star blue star" down in News and Announcements sub-forum for the disscusion and process on how to get your own.
Thanks. I've seen mention of Igors.
I think they selected the eagle because of his helmet (http://www.sheldonbrown.com/eagle.html).
Here's a picture:
You might be right about that!

Sheldon called the eagle on his helmet Igor, ergo the name of the symbol .
