You will have to do the following to set Thunderbird as your default email program to use with iPhoto.
1. Launch iPhoto and select iPhoto -> Preferences from the file menu
2. When the preferences window opens up, you will see a tab called General
3. Look near the bottom of this page panel and you will see an option 'Email photos using:'. You can select what email program to use to send your photos from iPhoto by selecting from the drop down menu which email program. In this case, it will be Thunderbird.
4. And that's it. Simply close the preferences window and you will see the Thunderbird icon appear on the bottom right corner of the iPhoto window.
