National Bird Day

National Bird Day - January 5th

Did you know that January 5 is National Bird Day? It’s true! National Bird Day was established to help raise awareness of birds facing extinction and to foster a greater appreciation of our feathered friends.

From the National Bird Day website:

“National Bird Day is not only a good day to take time to appreciate the native wild birds flying free outside our windows, it is also a perfect time to reflect on how we treat the native birds of other countries.”

We are fortunate here in Columbia County and the surrounding area to have many birds that remain in the area through the winter months. These winter months, when food is at its scarcest, are the perfect time to keep your bird feeders filled. The more birds you feed during the winter, the more you will see come Spring.
