Bird Day is a holiday for bird lovers and birdwatchers throughout the United States. There are nearly 10,000 species of birds in the world, but many of them face the risk of extinction everyday. Part of the extinction problem is being caused by the illegal pet trade of exotic birds. Many people celebrate this day by birdwatching and educating others about the issues. Born Free USA and The Avian Welfare Coalition are asking people and websites to stop sharing videos of pet birds to stop spreading the idea that it’s okay to keep birds as pets.
