Today is National Bird Day!

API - National Bird Day 2007 (Think Outside the Cage)

Each year, millions of exotic birds are captured from the wild or produced in captivity for commercial profit or human amusement, only to languish in conditions that fail to meet these animals’ instinctive behavioral and physical needs. As a result, many birds lead miserable lives.

National Bird Day (January 5) is a day to appreciate our own native wild birds flying free outside our windows, and a day to reflect on how we treat the native birds of other countries. National Bird Day is also a time to commit to improving the lives of birds in captivity and supporting efforts aimed at protecting birds in the wild.

Spread the word.
