What does that mean exactly? These organizations, as well as 150 others, will be celebrating birds all year long through magazines, television, social media, and more. They will also encourage people to get involved with simple monthly tasks to help birds. We’re excited to celebrate the Year of the Bird alongside these organizations, and we hope you’ll join us by attending Birds of Prey Day!
