First Bird Day

The very first observed Bird Day was on May 4, 1894. The holiday was suggested by the superintendent of schools, Charles A. Babcock in Oil City, Pennsylvania. Brd Day was widely acknowledged in honor of birds everywhere.

Everyone knows how wonderful it is to hear bird song and see birds flying through the air. In 1897 two ornithologists Mabel Osgood Wright and Elliot Coues got together with artist Louis Agassiz Puertee and published the book “Citizen Bird.” The book was meant to educate children about birds and the book was dedicated to “All Boys and Girls Who Love Birds and Wish to Protect Them.”

There are many colorful and lovely birds in this world and each has its own bird call. Unfortunately, efforts continue to preserve birds in America because they seem to become rarer.  So put out those birdhouses and put up those birdbaths so birds know they are appreciated.
