National Pet Bird Day

National Pet Bird Day is dedicated to feathered pets and celebrated on September 17th. Such pets are popular with both young people and the older generation. Why birds? The answer is simple: they are very interesting to watch!


The idea of ​​celebrating National Pet Bird Day belongs to the Bird Enjoy and Advantage Koalition. It promotes responsible attitudes towards birds and gives recommendations to bird owners on various issues. The official website of the organization contains a lot of information that is useful for bird owners.

It is believed birds were tamed over 7,000 years ago. During the Middle Ages, birds were kept in royal possessions and were pets of the rulers. At the end of the 15th century, canaries became especially popular.

Owning feathered pets allows you to relieve stress and even communicate (talking parrots will help with this). There will never be a dull moment with birds.
