Using the illustrations and photographs in these fiction and non-fiction books is a great way for pre-readers to explore and “read” independently or with you. They can take a picture walk to learn facts about different birds, work on concepts of print, and much more!


What Is National Bird Day?

National Bird Day is January 5th annually. People celebrate our feathered friends by spending time bird-watching, studying birds, or adopting birds. The Avian Welfare Coalition uses this day to encourage people to support wild bird habitat conservation programs and captive bird rescue organizations and sanctuaries.
