National Pet Bird Day
National Pet Bird Day is a day for bird lovers and pet owners alike.
Birds make wonderful pets! Birds are easy to integrate into families, and are relatively easy to take care of and require little time. Birds can live up to 50 years if they are well cared for and fed.
Historians believe birds were kept as pets for over 5000 years starting in Brazil. Alexander the Great, who had conquered India by the third century BC, brought parrots to Europe. The first parrot to be found in Britain was recorded in 1504, when Henry VIII kept an African Grey Parrot as a pet.
Birds have become more popular pets over the years and are now enjoyed by almost everyone. National Pet Bird Day was established to celebrate the joy and beauty of owning a pet bird.
