Bird Day / Always on May 4
Bird Day is the oldest of the days set aside to recognize
birds. According to the U.S. Library of Congress, Bird
Day was first observed  on May 4, 1894. It was started
by Charles Almanzo Babcock, superintendent of
schools in Oil City, Pennsylvania. By 1910, Bird Day
was widely celebrated, often in conjunction with
Arbor Day. Bird Day and Arbor Day events are focused upon conservation training and awareness.   Bird Day - from the Library of Congress

National Bird Day / Always January 5
National Bird Day was established by bird activists. It calls upon
people to recognize the plight of captive birds. It also draws
attention to exploitation of birds in the U.S. pet industry. On this
day, organizers suggest we reflect upon the conditions of birds
held in captivity.  On National Bird Day take the time to
appreciate the native wild birds flying free outside our windows
and make an effort to learn about birds both in the wild and our
feathered friends that we keep as pets. www.nationalbirdday.com
