Make This Your Year of the Bird

Each month take small actions to make a difference for birds. In May, participate in Global BigDay on May 5 by looking for birds and recording your sightings at eBird.org. Remember, simple changes around your house or yard can be better for birds too—and for our climate. Mow less, avoid pesticides, think organic, and save water. Join the 2018 Year of the Bird celebration!
