“In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.” - Robert Lynd
Today is National Bird Day, a celebration of captive and wild birds that was created to promote avian awareness. Nearly twelve percent of the world’s bird species are in danger of extinction and our flying friends are some of nature’s most fascinating creatures, so take this “holiday” as your excuse to head out into the wilderness and do some birdwatching. Or, take your bird appreciation to the next level and adopt one! When was the last time your pet sang to you?
