National Bird Day
When: National Bird Day is celebrated on January 5th
National Bird Day was established by bird activists. It calls upon people to recognize the plight of captive birds. It also draws attention to exploitation of birds in the U.S. pet industry. On this day, organizers suggest we reflect upon the conditions of birds held in captivity.
Note: Our research did not find any documentation that this is a "National" day, which requires an act of congress.
We encourage you to take a few minutes to watch and observe birds, as well as to feed them.
