Fun Holiday – Bird Day

January 5 is Bird Day, a day to think about birds in captivity and to take action to ensure that birds are not exploited and are treated humanely.

The day, started by Born Free U.S.A. and the Avian Welfare Coalition, aims to focus public attention on the fact that almost 12 per cent of bird species around the world are under threat of extinction.

How to Celebrate?

  • Read more about bird pet adoptions and laws in your country about adopting exotic birds as pets.
  • Do due diligence when getting an exotic or imported bird as a pet. Use only well-reputed pet stores.
  • Spread the word about humanely caring for exotic pet birds.
  • Change your social media display picture to a picture of your favorite bird.
  • Go bird watching and learn more about the birds indigenous to your area.

…that hummingbirds lay the smallest eggs - the size of a pea - among birds?
