You thought the holiday season was over, didn’t you? But we haven’t observed National Bird Day yet! Every year on January 5, avid bird lovers celebrate their passion for these flightful beings in events held throughout the U.S. We know, there’s a lot of pressure to have big plans for Bird Day and perhaps all you want to do is sit around and watch bird-related movies (if so, check out the 10th item on our list for an event that won't require you to leave the couch). However, if you find yourself itching to get out of the house for the festivities, we’ve searched tirelessly to find 10 of the best Bird Day events from across the country.
