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.

    emoticon LOVE Bird Watching!! Once had a Client who had a Family of Wild Mockingbirds who would come to the door and demand their Daily Raisins, LOL!! One of them would even eat the Raisins directly out of your hand.

    I found a 'rescue' bird, he is still with me, a little parakeet, lost in our park behind our home! He is SO cute! We call him LUCKY, because he is! He is the joy of my life! He has his own cd player & listens to morning birds cd, in the mornings! Check out my spark page photos... he is in there, if you are interested! He also travels with me in the car & he LOVES Christmas carols & singing with me! TOOOOOOO FUNNY!
