Nature lovers, bird lovers, and bird watchers across the country annually recognize National Bird Day on January 5th.
Born Free USA emphasizes the importance of National Bird Day and lists it as a day to shine a spotlight on issues critical to the protection and survival of birds, both captive and wild. According to Born Free USA, nearly 12 percent of the world’s almost 10,000 bird species are in danger of extinction.
One of the ways to support the birds on National Bird day is to create a wildlife habitat in your backyard. Below you will find some ways to do this.

Creating a Wildlife Habitat in Your Backyard
Read About Birds
Build a Bird House
Birds need housing, just like every other animal. As we continue to deforest large swaths of the planet for development, it’s imperative for us to create birdhouses to make up for – even just a fraction – the loss of habitat they face everyday.
Feed the Birds
Bread crumbs, nuts, and seeds. If you got some trail mix you don’t want anymore, birds would love you. In fact, if you have chickens you can actually feed them most food and table scraps and they’ll gobble it right up.
