Free Binoculars at Stake in Our Photo Contest
ANNOUNCE: The Sky’s the Limit with National Bird Day
One decade after we hatched National Bird Day, our feathered friends are as worthy of celebration as ever before — and as deserving of their right to live freely and fully in the wild. As the 10th annual National Bird Day on Jan. 5, 2012, approaches, Born Free USA invites you to participate in a number of all-avian activities! All-new for 2012 are our colorful posters (which can be downloaded for free or ordered from our online store for a $1 shipping and handling charge), our "10 Things You Can Do to Reduce Bird Window Collisions" and, related to that, a photo contest in which you can win a pair of binoculars! Just send us a picture of how you've made one of your windows bird-friendly by the end of the day on National Bird Day, Jan. 5, 2012.

PARTICIPATE: Join Us in Making This the Best Bird Day Ever
As always, please let us know if you have anything special planned for National Bird Day so we can help spread the good word! This past January, for example, college students in California made origami cranes that were decorated by elementary school students; the Avian Welfare Coalition (which partners with us in promoting National Bird Day) celebrated by organizing special activities for schoolchildren in New York; and the mayor of Charlottesville, Va., Dave Norris, issued a National Bird Day proclamation. We can suggest six specific ways you can get involved and also have a list of fun activities, including our interactive (and very popular!) Bird Call Quiz.

SHOP: Keep Your Backyard Birds Well-Fed and Sheltered
Like all animals in the wild — and all plant and animal life on the planet, for that matter! — birds require a healthy environment for a better quality of life. Do your part to protect our natural resources while providing birds with the basics by purchasing our eco-friendly Recycled Glass Hummingbird Feeder, Recycled Plastic Bird Feeder or Recycled Plastic Wren House, all new this year to Born Free USA's online store. Not sure whether feeding birds is the ethical thing to do? Read our Senior Campaign Associate Barry Kent MacKay's Q&A on the provocative topic.
