Every year on January 5, National Bird Day is honored. This event raises awareness about the fact that birds, particularly those not native to the United States, are an endangered species. It emphasizes how we can all help to safeguard birds and their habitats, both captive and wild. At the same time, it encourages people to take a few moments out of their day to appreciate the beauty of birds and their songs.
Bird Day is not the same as National Bird Day. Bird Day, held on May 4th since the nineteenth century, emphasizes the importance of birds to the environment.
Born Free USA and the Avian Welfare Coalition were founded on this day in 2002. Their mission was to raise awareness about avian issues in the United States. This holiday was chosen on January 5th to coincide with the annual Christmas Bird Count. This three-week count is a citizen science survey that monitors the health of the United States native bird populations.
Birds do so much more than just sing their tunes. They are sentinel species, serving as a barometer of ecosystem health and alerting us to global environmental problems.
They are critical to our environment, and the only way to ensure their existence is to educate the public about methods to help them and create awareness about the need for conservation, which is why National Bird Day is so vital.
There are about 10,000 different bird species in the globe, with 850 of them found in the United States. According to Bird Free USA, 12% of the 10,000 species are on the verge of extinction.
How to Celebrate National Bird Day?

Bird watching is an excellent pastime on this day. You can either join a local bird-watching organization or purchase a bird identification book and attempt it yourself. This is a great method to learn more about the animals that live near you.
You may aid the birds in your region by providing feeders and cover in your garden if you have one. The birds will feel as if they have found a haven and a haven in your backyard.
